Ask any Broadway actor, silicon valley creator or noteworthy author what they think of reviews and you are likely to hear that they often ‘wonder who reviews these reviewers.’ For FindApps.com, a new app review site, the people reviewing their reviewers are our own staff right here at Digital Apex and the outcome is excellent.
Aside from the reporting we do day to day on a variety of tech relevant topics, and the interviews of forward thinking visionairies we publish – Digital Apex staffers are as apt to be looking for a good new mobile game, recipe service, productivity app or hot new app store release as you are, and our search usually starts with a visit to FindApps.com
Unlike the deluge of other app review sites that litter the Internet, Find Apps actually highlights many lesser known offerings from independent developers along side all the big name releases from dependable brands. That dedication to digging a little deeper is something we support strongly, and the simplicity of their reviews is refreshing as well.
“When we started work on FindApps.com, we had one of those long meetings where a half dozen people run through so many ideas… and in less than an hour we managed to come up with almost three dozen different criteria we could use to rate or rank apps in some way or another” explained Tim Ward, Lead Developer of FindApps.com “Then someone raised their hand and said ‘Yeah but who wants to read all that when they can just download the app for free and decide for themselves?’ That’s when we realized that speed, simplicity and covering otherwise unknown developers is where we can provide the most value for our audience.'”
It was one of those crucial moments in the life of any successful startup, when a complicated good idea for a service gets simplified down to its essential core. “What we realized is that people do not need help rating and ranking apps beyond knowing if they are good, bad or terrible” Ward said with a smirk “Any differentiation beyond that comes down to how you plan to use it, what your particular needs are, and that’s why we decided to focus instead on helping people FIND the apps they might want most.”
FindApps.com takes ‘there’s an app for that’ to a whole new level, frequently adding fresh new listings and mini-reviews that you can read in under a minute, each showcasing which apps there are for that and why one might be better for you than the others. “It’s easy to say that there is an app for everything, but depending on whether you are using iOS or Android, your screen size, goals and expectations” according to Tim “the right app can become hard to find even if it’s sitting right there in the app store, hiding in plain site. FindApps.com helps worthy apps bubble up to the top and focuses on adding the a of browsability that both iTunes and the Play store have failed to provide.”
Getting the right app, quickly and easily starts with finding it, and your search for new apps is always going to be fastest and simplest if you start it off at FindApps.com
