The Apple “App Store” has over 500,000 apps available for download, and this number is increasing every day. There are apps for science, reading, note taking, video editing, and basically anything else you can think of. As the saying goes, “There’s an app for that.” With so much stuff out there though, it can be very tough, not to mention time consuming, searching for apps that are beneficial and free (or very cheap). This tech tip is to share two valuable resources that have done all of the work for you.
Appadvice.com is an EXCELLENT resource for iPhone/iPad apps.
You can search for apps in a few different ways: app reviews, app lists, app guides, and an app base.
App reviews: Read their reviews of newly-released apps.
App charts: Search through the App Store charts by category just like you would within the App Store itself.
App lists: One of the coolest features of this site…they handpick apps to fit your lifestyle. Find “apps to help you be green”, “apps for car drivers”, “apps to plan events”, and so much more!
App guides: These guides are all “best of” apps for various topics. For each one, they break down the apps by rating: essential apps (the top 2-3), notable apps, decent apps, and other apps. Check out their appguide for best handwriting apps on the iPad.
App base: Browse new apps (free or paid) by category.
