Bug Description

When searching apps, the Rating filter does not affect all categories. Inside the app previews, all apps are marked as having 0 stars.

---------------------
Desired resolution:

In the App Lens:

- Inside each app preview, the correct number of stars should be displayed (for both installed and un-installed apps)

- Completely remove the 'Rating' filter from 'Filter Results' panel in the Apps Lens

- No stars (either empty or filled) should be displayed in the app preview for apps which do not originate from the software centre.

Not entirely sure if the rating was intended to be editable.
Will need some input from design.

Even it they are not editable , they should at least work.
Everything is rated 5 stars or no stars for the applications.lens
The Video lens is not rating anything at all.
Maybe if it is not for video lens it should be taken out ?or designed differently.
I 100% understand that this is beta software. Just my thoughts on it though.

Application preview ratings are being received without normalisation from application lens. (0.0 - 5.0 instead of 0.0 - 1.0)
