Making apps linkable

We currently have many articles listing various programs using Template:App but you cannot link to them. I thought that we could just add an id="app-{{{1}}}" but the first argument isn't an reliable app identifier as it also contains wiki / interwiki links. Any ideas?--Larivact (talk) 15:54, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Another problem is that even the program name without any formatting does not provide a unique identifier on every page, search e.g. for "Eric" on the List of applications. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 18:34, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
Well this isn't feasible then.--Larivact (talk) 03:58, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
