On November 4, 2009 Apple announced that developers have created over 100,000 apps for the App Store, making it the largest applications store in the world.
With more than 20 categories to choose from and new apps being launched everyday, sometimes it’s difficult to discover new apps of your interest. iPhone OS 3.0 introduced new genius feature for the App Store which enables you to discover apps on the basis of installed apps on your device.
Genius for App Store is certainly a great way to explore apps which you would probably be interested in, however it is limited to the number of apps you install or buy for your device.
Apptizr is a new iPhone app recommendation service (still in beta) which uses proprietary algorithm to suggest app recommendations on the basis of your tastes. After the initial sign up for the service (available by invitation only) you are presented with a series of questions which help the service identify your interest and start recommending quality apps.
We have been testing the service for a few days and the results are positive. Although, almost all recommendations were already owned by us.
David Li, CEO and Co-Founder of Apptizr describes the service as follows:
With over 100K apps approved by the Apple App Store, finding high quality apps that match your interests is like finding a needle in the haystack. Apptizr does the heavy lifting through our proprietary algorithm that matches the users’ interest with the right apps. The engine is smart enough to learn more about our users’ preferences over time as they tell us whether they liked the recommendations we made. We also evaluate the applications for quality and only recommend the best apps in each category to our users.
The service allows you to either like or dislike a recommendation which enables the service to become smarter.
If you love to discover new apps which match your interest level then you should definitely try Apptizr!
