August 5, 2010 in Productivity
[prMac.com] Los Angeles, California - App Popular, LLC, today is pleased to announce the release of App Popular Recommendations 4.0, available as a free download exclusively from the iTunes App Store. The new version lets users access a daily "stream" of personal iPhone iOS app recommendations. By simply "liking" 5 or more of their favorite apps, users receive day-to-day custom app suggestions. They are encouraged to add these apps to their "want" list to receive free price change alerts via push notification messaging. Users may further "like" or "dislike" apps they purchase from their "Apps I Want" list, thereby seamlessly fueling additional recommendations.
"We are excited to continue to help people discover iPhone apps with this effortlessly accessible personal recommendation engine," says creator John R. Haigh.
Version 4.0 also offers an alternative hybrid search engine that complements the normal App Store search results. Search can be accessed with one tap from the main menu and results may be refined using a flip screen price filter. Price range options in US dollars include: all, free, $0.99, $1.99-$4.99, $5.99-$9.99, $10.99 , or any combination.
App Popular Recommendations lets users easily browse any of the world's 77 App Stores by country and category, and includes social networking utilities to share apps via email, Facebook and Twitter. It offers default app lists to help users find other apps and save money: "Apps I Like", "Apps I Don't Like" and "Apps I Want". App Popular Recommendations uses these member default lists to create the top 100 "Apps Most Liked" and "Apps Most Wanted".
App Popular utilizes Apple's iOS push notification service to help users track App Store price changes and save money. Push notifications are currently available only for apps downloadable worldwide. To alert users to deals and trends throughout the day, the application also offers a "Hot Apps Stream" to view price changes of currently ranked apps, new #1 rankings, apps entering and leaving the top 10 and the latest changes to the "Top Picks by Members". The stream currently tracks the United States & United Kingdom's (Free & Paid) "Top Overall," "Top Grossing, and "All Games" categories.
With convenient access to 77 App Stores and the chance for users to discover and share newfound apps, App Popular, LLC offers its users a wider exploration of the app universe. Whether addicted to the App Store or just obsessed with international trends, the App Popular Recommendations application can help users unearth, stumble upon and save money on the apps they want, or don't even yet know they want.
