Users care about being verified for an app. We know they care about an app if they link to it. After a user links to an app, they should know whether they are verified for that app, and if the app has verification levels, which level they have achieved. It seems natural to show this in the apps tab.
As far as a general verification status that shows up on a user’s home screen and on the connections view for other people (instead of the “score” which will soon be removed), my thought is that if a user has a verification that qualifies them for at least one app, they have a somewhat faded “partial” verification sticker that everyone can see. If they have qualified for all the apps they’ve linked it is a full verification where it is a bright orange.
This way you can visually check the progress of yourself and friends. What I care about checking is: has my friend gotten verified for the apps they care about?
Places this should show: home screen, connection list (for each connection), apps tab (next to each app that is verified) (any others?)
