Discovering Mobile Applications Becomes Easier With New AppCrawlr Search Engine

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TipSense, LLC today announced the launch of AppCrawlr, the most relevant and useful search engine for discovering mobile applications. Using technology built from the ground up, AppCrawlr provides more relevant search results than any other source.

AppCrawlr recommends apps based on any topic, feature or interest. For example, users can conduct an app search for "having a bad day," "puzzle game" or " turn based." Users can also find apps based on any feature or characteristic such as "challenging," "replay value" or even "good hand eye coordination."

"With this new search paradigm for discovering apps, users can now quickly find the apps they actually want," said David Schorr, founder of AppCrawlr.

AppCrawlr also streamlines the search experience by allowing users to quickly filter their search results based on suggested categories and concepts. For example, a search for "jazz" can be quickly narrowed to "internet radio" or "for musicians" and then further on "for drummers," "for guitar players" or even "ear training."

A user who searches for "quotes" could select the "finance" filter if they want a stock quote app or "lifestyle" filter if they want an app for inspirational quotes. These intelligent filters save users hours of wasted time sorting through endless apps that are outside the scope of what a user is actually searching for.

Another highlight of the site is a feature comparison matrix that lets users see how features stack up across similar apps. For example, comparing the features across apps that are good for "keeping you organized" will indicate which apps are better for note taking and which ones are better for to-do lists. The ability to understand how well a feature is liked for a free app compared to a paid app will also give consumers the information they need to make an informed purchase or download decision.
