[prMac.com] Oslo, Norway - The popular software tracking website, iusethis, has expanded its reach to iPhone users today. Members can now submit, browse and vote up iPhone applications.
iusethis has been serving the Macintosh community for over two years, and has planted its flag as the most innovative and community-centered software tracking site on the web. The website allows software users to mark applications they use, contributing to the application's "iusethis" score, similar to social news site digg.
The website's founders have been firm believers and fans of the iPhone, and were toying with the idea of an iPhone app section, even before the App Store was announced.
"We were actually thinking about doing this earlier for "jail-broken" apps, but once Apple stepped in with the App Store, an iPhone section on iusethis became a no brainer." says co-founder Arne Fismen.
Due to its use of modern technology, iusethis is in a position where it can quickly develop new features, and is the first major software directory to support Apple iPhone. A democratic web application like iusethis gives a better overview of popular applications, as well as a better opportunity to see trends.
