Spotting your new favorite app just got easier

Yahoo! App Search and AppSpot Take the Guesswork Out of Finding an App

Today Yahoo! introduced not one, but two fun and fast ways that help you discover new and relevant mobile apps: Yahoo! App Search for the PC, and AppSpot, a free mobile app for iPhone and Android users. Together, they take the guesswork out of finding apps that fit your life.

With 425,000-plus apps in the Apple App Store and 200,000 apps in Android Market, we know finding what you want can be exhausting.  And even more challenging: There are times you don’t know the specific name of the app, so you’re leaving it up to chance that you’re actually downloading the app you really want.

Using Yahoo!’s powerful search technology, App Search and AppSpot allow you to zero-in on any app by showing matching app titles with a full comprehensive description, price, overall star rating from users, and screenshots in one spot to help you with your decision: to download or not to download. For an enhanced mobile experience, Yahoo! AppSpot delivers daily, completely personalized recommendations of the mobile apps you should consider based on the apps you’ve downloaded.

We’re giving you a better way – both for discovering apps that are most relevant to you and finding the utility apps that help get the job done – regardless of the type of device or platform.

Take a spin through AppSpot and App Search to see for yourself.

Start discovering new apps today! AppSpot is available now for download on AppSpot for iPhone and iPod touch and AppSpot for Android.
