The idea is to help users scan and compare apps faster
Sachse, TX (PRWEB) November 24, 2012
Last week, iPhone and iPad app discovery site AppPlot.com released new features to filter and sort apps by both the current version rating and the rating of all app versions. Brian Morale, the site owner and lead developer on the project said, “Our goal has always been to empower users with the ability to find the best apps for iPhone and iPad , at any time, with any criteria. I believe we have taken that goal one step further with our latest release.”
AppPlot.com tracks every app in the US App Store, which is currently over 700,000 apps. Users of the site apply filters or sorts to help them browse only the apps they are interested in. Once a user has narrowed down a list of apps, they have the ability to click and expand each result row to view summarized information about the app. “The idea is to help users scan and compare apps faster”, says Mr. Morale.
When asked why AppPlot.com was created, Mr. Morale said, “I have always found it frustrating to find apps in the App Store. When I want to find a new game for my young kids, I don’t want to browse through games with a content rating of 17+, or games with a user rating of one star. So I made my own site to solve that problem, and it has grown from there.”
The new iPhone and iPad app finding features increase AppPlot.com’s sort and filter capabilities to 1,451,520 unique combinations. Other popular features include the ability to find new iPhone and iPad apps, iPhone and iPad apps on sale, apps with a given content rating, and apps that are free.
AppPlot.com has two versions of the site, a desktop version and a mobile web version. The new sort and filtering features are currently active on the desktop version, and are scheduled to be added to the mobile version within the next few days, according to lead developer Brian Morale.
AppPlot.com is a site dedicated to helping users find the best iPhone and iPad apps and was made available to the general public in September 2012. The site is owned and operated by Boiling Point Software, LLC.
