FINDING A GOOD ANDROID APP

There are more than 400,000 Android apps. What’s a body to do? Fortunately, there’s an app for finding apps.

The app is Appreciate, and it’s for Android phones and tablets. Appreciate makes recommendations as it gets to know what you like. Or, if you want, you can tap various categories, such as New Games, New Apps, Local info, Guys, Girls, Kids and Trending.

If it thinks an app is a good match for you, it says so. (Have we reached the point where apps think?) A tiny arrow points to a cartoon of a woman if more women like that app, or a cartoon of a man if men like the app. The cartoons are so similar we couldn’t tell the difference. The only clue is the lady cartoon has a hair bun. (Is this sexist? Isn’t everything?) “Appreciate” has been downloaded over 100,000 times.
