5 Android app discovery tools
Formerly known as AppDisco, Fetch is an excellent tool for discovering new apps and games that best suit your preferences. It can sniff out new apps or games based on the ones you like or already have. Or you can just mix and match different software categories in order to find exactly what you need. Searching for games, for example, can be done by picking a specific combination of traits, ranging from genre and difficulty to input method and gameplay intensity.
And here's one more application recommending tool with a bit of personal touch. You can get recommendations from both your Facebook friends and from the Appreciate user community, which is ready to exchange great apps and games with you. New recommendations tailored in accordance with the user's taste are generated on a daily basis.
The Playboard team consists of actual human beings that dig through the Play Store and pick out all thouse gems that people might overlook. There's a number of app and game categories, which you can subscribe to in order to get new recommendations on a regular basis. It is also neat that Playboard lists applications specifically made for users in a given country.
Although it is still in beta, Mapsaurus is shaping up like a promising app discovery tool. It sorts applications in a number of categories, much like the apps we previously mentioned, but it also has its own unique way of letting its users browse for new software. Mapsaurus generates a visual map of connections between similar applications and games. Don't hesitate to give it a shot and see what new apps you might find!

I will have to try some of these out. It's probably a little easier on my phone than installing and uninstalling things.

I think the best way to find new application is asking you friend.
My friend advices me Angry Birds, Dolphin and ArkMC DLNA applications.

The only one I ended up keeping was Appreciate. I liked the format, and I like how it gives you a set of suggested apps every day.

Thank you so much for the mention! I know I'm a little late to the party, but I just wanted to let you know that Fetch is also made up of a team of humans who review apps and games one by one, tag relevant traits, and make sure the less relevant apps don't clutter your search. Fetch evolved from our older app, Best Apps Market, and The Game Genome Project. I invite you and your readers to try out Fetch and see how it compares! [@fetchmobile]
