[prMac.com] Greifswald, Germany - rapidrabbit today is proud to announce the release of version 1.3 of their free AppStore meta-app "appbzr" (pronounced app bazaar) with many interface improvements that make the app even faster and simpler to use. It has never been easier to browse for price drops, hot apps or the worldwide top 100 of the AppStore. With 20,000 daily users and an average rating of 4 out of 5 stars, this free app is the favorite of many app hunters.
Ease of use and a great design have always been design goals for the "appbzr" and this update takes it to the next level. 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. In the latest version a new shopping list was added that allows users to mark apps, if they want to download them later. The most used list, the price drop list, is now much faster to reach. Users get push notifications whenever an app on that list becomes cheaper. Now every detail view of an app grants easy access to those two lists, while advanced features are hidden until the user needs those features.
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
