Finding an app in a haystack

AppStore

With 56,000 apps and counting, someone new to the App Store can get overwhelmed pretty quick. The top paid and free apps section in the iTunes Store can sometimes help newbies decide which apps to download first. However, even with experience the App Store  can still be difficult to wade through.

Luckily for users, there are some websites out there that can help sort through the confusion.

TUAW listed five online resources that can help you find the right app to suit your needs as well as update you on what’s new and what’s on sale:

  • Freeappalert.com
  • Appshopper.com
  • 148apps.com
  • Iviewer.com
  • Macworld’s App Guide

A TUAW commenter has suggested Yappler as another alternative to finding (and sharing) iPhone apps. Another commenter recommended Touch Arcade for news, previews and videos of the latest iPhone games.

I haven’t used any of these services yet. For me, the iTunes Store search works well enough but as David Winograd said, it needs a lot of improvements. I have the AppMiner app on my iPod touch but I don’t use it that often.

My source for the latest iPhone apps news and reviews are from MacWorld and TUAW via RSS. I used to have iLounge on my list but it seems they don’t want me going to their website anymore.

Was it something I said?
