In order to write these daily posts about fascinating and unusual apps that I've found, I often research them on AppShopper.com on the web. As you can imagine, when I saw the AppShopper app released today, I had to bring it to your attention. There are many app finder locator apps available. I suppose what differentiates one from the other is ease of use, smooth navigation, and good visual appeal. The new AppShopper fits the bill on all three scores for me. It will keep you current on the latest apps, sales and free apps (my personal favorite!). Organize apps in your own Wish List and automatically get notified when there is a sale or update on that one for which you've been longing. Some of the useful features of AppShopper are as follows:
- Popular Apps: This list changes to let make you aware of only the apps that other AppShopper users think are interesting
- What's New: Track all the latest changes to the App Store: price drops, updates, and new apps
- Wish List: Add any app to your own personal Wish List and get notified of price drops or updates
- My Apps: Keep track of the apps you already own
Open the app to three major sections on the top of your screen: Categories, Paid & Free, and All Types. Of course, under Categories you will see the standard description of categories under which all apps are named. When viewing Paid & Free, you will find either paid or free apps, or both put together. If you take a gander at All Types, a list of Updates, New and Price Changes are available. What I like about this app, is the uncluttered look of it with plenty of white space and large font to keep your eyes relaxed while browsing. When you tap on an app, simply swipe down to get a description of it, while the price and icon are listed on the top of your display. The bottom of your screen holds sections labeled Popular, What's New, My Apps, Wish List and Search. Utilize any of these sections to find exactly what you want. I like the Popular and What's New section of AppShopper myself, to see what's trendy and current! Try shopping apps with this excellent iPhone app search utility.
