[prMac.com] Greifswald, Germany - rapidrabbit today is proud to announce the release of version 1.2 of their AppStore meta-app "appbzr" (pronounced app bazaar). The new version includes many user requested features like faster browsing, more push settings, high resolution icons for retina displays and many more adjustments behind the scenes that improve the stability and speed of the app.
Every day hundreds of apps arrive at the AppStore, their price drops or they receive a feature that makes them very popular. It's increasingly difficult to keep track of these apps. As a result users have to read many blogs or they stop downloading apps at all. "appbzr" has, since its release, helped to solve this problem.
"appbzr" has been developed specifically for app enthusiasts and everyone who would like to become one. It will help to organize, discover and share apps and therefore is the ultimate tool for all app lovers. The fast and accessible interface makes browsing through apps fun again. Every feature can be reached with a single tap: price drops, new apps, hot apps, Top100, updated apps and lists. Even a search function has been integrated, that is directly tied to the iTunes Store.
"appbzr" does not limit the user to see generated lists, they also can compose their own lists and share them with their friends. To get them started, three standard lists are provided. Sharing of lists is easy - with a single tap the list can be send via mail to a friend or can be shared on facebook. Sharing individual apps works the same way.
Push messages play a big role, too. Every day the user will get an "appbzr reminder", that tells him how many new price drops, hot and new apps have been found. If an user sets an app on his wish list, he will receive an individual push message when the price for that app drops -a feature that is especially popular with "appbzr" users.
Here is a short overview about the app:
* Price drops, hot, updated and new apps only a tap away
* The Top100 of the biggest AppStore countries easily accessible
* Users can compose and share their own app lists
* Individual push messages for price drops
