I think it would be good to display the homepage link (from module.json) on the App configuration screen. Quite a few questions on the forum stem from the fact that users either can't find the manual page, or don't read it.
See e.g. http://forum.z-wave.me/viewtopic.php?f=3424&t=22613&p=62696#p62696

To illustrate this a bit further, the image below is an example of how I solved giving direct acces to help from the configuration screen.
appconfig
In module.json I "abused" the homepage field to make a reference to the latest sources on Github. ZWay automatically binds that automatically to the author name. In addition I made a link to a specific Recipe page on the forum in the en.json that is reached via the description field of module.json.
Many Apps presently have the home page field pointing to a company page. On further tought I think that should stay as it is.

I suggest to have an explicit module.json help field pointing to help on forum/github. On the configuration screen it can be added to the "info" line (after version/stability)
