AppAware: Discover Great Android Apps in Real-time
AppAware is a free application that shares online your installations, updates, and removals of Android apps. AppAware is a companion to the Android Market and helps you discover new and interesting apps that you may have never found. And the best part about it all? It’s all in real-time.
Overall Score: 4.9/5
User Interface: 5/5
Ease of Use: 5/5
When you open AppAware, you can see which apps are popular by how many people are installing them. You can filter the results based on time or your location. Additionally, you can get stats on all apps that have been installed, updated, and removed sorted by the last hour, day, or week. Also, you can see the most popular apps for your specific phone, which would especially come in handy for those running Android 1.5. Another cool feature is the ability to shake your phone in order to effortlessly update the list.
If you follow a specific link for an app, you’ll see more information about the frequency of installs as well as a direct link to open the app in the Android Market for easy download.
If you’d like to share your application information with others, you can choose to link AppAware with Twitter. You can also choose whether you’d like to contribute to AppAware’s statistics (anonymously) as well as the ability to locate where you are (for the location-based features).
Overall, I find myself already checking AppAware frequently to see what new apps I want to try (and which ones are good enough to share with you). We all know how difficult it is to find great new apps (hence this website!) and this app greatly aids in the continuous search. Install AppAware, you’ll definitely find something new and exciting!
