'Yahoo! AppSpot' helps you filter the cluttered App Store and Android Market
App filters aren't anything new. But you just might like the free 'Yahoo! AppSpot' app. It takes into account (with your permission) the apps on your device, and your location, to give you daily personalized apps. When you find an app you like, there is an on-screen link to direct you to the proper page in the App Store or Android Market.

'Yahoo! AppSpot' filters your suggestions into the following categories: weather, utilities, reference, medical, finance, books, news, social networking, education, entertainment, games, music, healthcare & fitness, productivity, sports, business, lifestyle, navigation, photography, and travel.

Beyond the personalization, you might really enjoy the layout. When you view an app, it puts a row of small thumbnails right at the top, so you don't have to scroll down to get a look at the app.

In addition to the mobile view, there is a desktop version, which will either send a text link to your device, or you can photograph the QR code with your device. Of course, it's not an unbiased service. It's heavily guided by Yahoo!'s ad revenue stream, and Yahoo!'s own products. But nothing's perfect.
