    I have 2 ideas basically
    #1
    The ability for us to select an image that will represent our hub.
    You know how we add at least 2-3 images to our hub. And its always that the first image is the one that is featured. While, for example, we want our second image to be featured because it looks better.
    I have a hub "12 Games That Will Make You Depressed" and the first image doesn't have much impact as the second one. If you could add that it would be great.
    #2
    Add an iTunes module. I have been thinking of making a few app reviews where I'd like to give my opinion on apps that are on iTunes, but also on Amazon. But I think that other writers can benefit from it.
    Just a few of my ideas.

      For #1 are you referring to the image that is used on your profile in the "in the spotlight" section or are you referring to the images that show up for your Hub in search engine results pages?

        I probably mean the spotlight. As I said, ma hub "12 Games That Will Make You Depressed", the image that shows up is not the one I like, but if you go and read my hub, you'll see that the second image is better. That man holding his dead wife in his hands. I could always change the order, but if I write hubs (in the future) where the best image is the second one, but I can't put it as the first one because my article doesn't allow it it won't have much of an impact. If the image is better, people are more likely to click on it.

          Hi Spahi992,

          We always recommend putting the Hub's best image first because it's the default image that shows up for social media sharing. Even if you were able to select which image to feature on HubPages, your readers will be using the default image in most cases when sharing it elsewhere.

            Well, I thought it was a good idea. What about my second suggestion?

              If the app is available on Amazon, you can put it into an Amazon capsule for your readers and it will show up there like any other product would.

                I know about amazon, I meant, if it is only on iTunes. Do you plan on adding an iTunes capsule in the future?

                  We have no plans to create any new capsules at this time, but will keep your suggestion in mind when considering future enhancements to the site.
