Discovr Apps is a clever app that helps users find apps. The app, which costs $1, works with the Apple iStore, and creates a map of apps determined by user input. It creates a map by using an app the user already has as a starting point. The app that you use as a starting point can come from the user’s collection, a search, or a featured app suggested by Discovr Apps.
The user then reads the app descriptions, and a link to the product is provided in the description. The new app can also be shared by Facebook, Twitter, or email. The app is designed to present a simple alternative to more complicated app-finding programs.
HootSuite, whose app directory was launched in November, 2011, has added three new apps that are now available in the directory. The apps are InboxQ, TrendSpotter, and Digg. InboxQ allows users to find questions on Twitter based on phrase and keyword searches. TrendSpotter allows users to find trends by phrase, topic, or keyword. Digg allows users to find news stories through HootSuite’s dashboard.
HootSuite comes in Basic, Pro, and Enterprise levels, and includes apps for GetSatisfaction, Flickr, Tumblr, and YouTube. They have also announced that they are now connected to the click.to site. This allows users to add content from “anywhere. “ According to the click.to site, any user who wants to share information can click the HootSuite icon, and it can be “shared everywhere.”
