As far as i can tell this is something unity-scope-click does on its own.

Just a note that this will look awfully bad in anything but the portrait phone (tablet, desktop, landscape phone etc.).

Are we sure that's what we want? Also I'll have to check how close to this design we can get with the toolkit as it is today.

And what about bug #1383215 exactly?

What is the rationale for this change? Why should we display this entry differently than we display scopes everywhere else? The current design matches what we show for scopes in the store scope when looking for additional scopes to install, and in the dash overview when browsing installed scopes. The dead space might be slightly annoying for design sensibilities, but it is consistent.

Also, the design presented here is quite bad for translations, as some languages may have longer strings which do not fit inside the card. The current layout works OK, as only the word "store" and the order of the words "Ubuntu Store" need to be affected by translation, and the dash will keep the text centered on two lines. This new design does not support that behavior well.

Even only considering Spanish, it is bad, as the translation is a bit long already: "Consiga mas aplicaciones en la tienda"

New design also introduces string changes that would break existing translations.

Not sure if this Visual Design change is still required - If so, further consideration definitely needs to be given to Landscape/ form factors other than the phone (as Saviq correctly pointed out previously)

Handing it over to the new Lead Visual Designer who took over from Esti.

summary: - [Dash] [Apps Scope] Ubuntu Store icon should be entire width of screen
+ [Apps Scope] Ubuntu Store icon should be entire width of screen

Please use attached design as reference.
All text and inner shadow remain unchanged from the current implementation.
Use Icon the one from the same as on the design.
Please note that this update is just to solve this bug, we are working on improving the UX/UI.

Thanks
