Let Us Know Your Favorite iOS Apps, With Applr

Are you like me – a bit of an iOS app addict? I’ve never found Apple’s App Store to be particularly helpful for discovering new apps. A recent tweet by Adam Christianson of the MacCast mentioned something called Applr, which I had never heard of. It turns out that Applr is a web app that helps you find new iOS apps, by following other people and seeing what they’re using. Other users can also follow you, to see your favorite apps.


I’ve only been using Applr for about a day now, but it’s worth checking out. When you sign up, you have to decide whether to give it your Apple ID credentials, so that it can keep your app list updated automatically. I decided against this, and instead have been going the manual route.

When you put your list of apps into the database, you can mark 20 of them as favorites (10 iPad and 10 iPhone), and recommend an unlimited number of them. You can also see what other users have input, and follow users. The site parses data, giving you info on the number of recommendations and favorites that an app has received.

If you want to follow me, I can be found on my page. Feel free to input your page link into the comments below, so others can check out what apps you use.

Hello, I'm Evan. I write about tech from my perspective – that of the average 40-something tech geek. You can also find me on Twitter and at my real-life job as a lawyer.    MORE ABOUT ME.


  1. Evan,
    You’re probably going to laugh at me, but my favorite app on iOS is WhatsApp. I’ve even convinced my mom to install it on her phone, along with about twenty other friends. Whats great about this app is the fact that it helps you chat with your friends without having to worry about texting charges since sending messages on the app is absolutely free and instant. My other guilty pleasure would have to be Fruit Ninja.

    • I know people that use that or a similar service. I’m lucky in the sense that I have an unlimited texting plan through work, so I don’t need to worry about that. Liking that app is not crazy at all, if it saves you money.
