Another way to find apps, rather than trying your luck in the App Store.
A new startup, Quixey, has a new way to find apps, using a functional search engine that takes your query and returns app recommendations from multiple platforms. It lets you use natural language queries, so it's quite user-friendly. This startup will debut next month, but if you head to their site you can request a beta invite. I can only hope that we get more and better tools for finding apps, especially games. I'm still appalled at how hard it is to find a game you like in the App Store, and as for the Android Market... let's hope Amazon's take on it works better.
I'm a game designer, marketer, and writer. Best known as co-founder of Hero Games and co-designer of Champions, I've also designed other paper and electronic games, written and edited books, manuals, and articles, and marketed many products, from entertainment software to medical devices; I was Director of Marketing for TSR after its purchase by Wizards of the Coast. I live between the redwoods and the beach, not far from where my great-great grandfather jumped ship to enter the Gold Rush.
