I’m not ashamed to say that I love apps. In particular, I love searching for new and exciting apps and giving them a try – weighing up whether they deserve a spot on my beloved home screen.
Even so, I probably only actively search for new apps three or four times a week – in a moment of downtime my finger hovers over the App Store, what new gem might I find? I look at the most popular apps of the moment, maybe browse a category I fancy by popularity, take a look at the staff picks and hot new apps.
If I’m really in the mood for some digging, I might even browse a category by the most recent apps – a search which requires patience and consistently good judgement to find any items of worth.
What I’m really intrigued to find out is how often you search for apps? Do you tend to just follow up recommendations, or do you look for new and exciting releases every day?
Are you a casual browser on the odd occasion you’re lured to the App Store by the updates badge, or do you search with purpose, finely tuning your genius recommendations?
