    Question Seeking an intelligent portal to the App Store

    I've been using Appcuity (ProVUE Development) as my primary gateway to the Mac App Store (MAS). This external database of MAS information provides rapid searching, sorting and filtering, along with app pricing history, 1-click "on sale" filtering, side-by-side comparison, ....

    On my new iPad 2, I'm at a loss using Apple's native interface for the iOS App Store. Browsing categories and simple search just doesn't cut it.

    My search for an Appcuity-like service for the iOS App Store turned up only the Yahoo! App Search website and the companion Yahoo! AppSpot iPhone app. I find them inferior to the App Store.

    Have I overlooked a useful portal to the iOS App Store?

    Try AppShopper.com They also have an iPad app available in the app store.

    P.S. Don't get me started on everything that's WRONG with the app store.

    Unfortunately, the only "useful" portal I have found to browsing the App Store are my Google search skillz and time. I'll generally use my PC, but sometimes the iPad/web browser, to look for app ideas. Then, when (if) I find an app description that sounds promising, I go directly to the App Store and type the name in the search bar.

    Not a big help - this is just to let you know you're not alone in your disappointment with the App Store and browsing...

    App Shopper and App Hits both are much better than the App Store for finding apps.
