Site Update! New User Membership Features

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

We’ve just updated and added user accounts for personal App tracking!

Immediately obvious should be the two new tabs: “My Apps” and “Wish List.” Users must register and log in, to add Apps to these personal lists.

With Apps in your personal “My Apps” and “Wish List” lists, you can take advantage of:

  • email notifications to keep abreast of price and version updates to the Apps you own
  • subscription to your personal “My Apps” and “Wish List” RSS feeds
  • list organization by App rating and sorting

Note: the personal RSS feeds are not secured by login.

We expect that managing these lists of Apps is intuitive enough, but for a little explanation: Apps are added to your personal “My Apps” or “Wish List” tabs by clicking the individual app’s “own it” or “want it” checkboxes, respectively. These checkboxes appear in underneath the price box for each App on both the front “What’s New” page as well as the search results page. You may also take Apps from your Wish List to your My Apps list via the “bought it” checkbox. Apps may be removed from the lists by mousing over the App icon, and clicking the “X” that appears.

After logging into your site account, we recommend searching for the Apps you own/want to build your lists. From then on, sign up for email notifications, and keep an eye on “What’s New” and search around for existing apps to grow your “Wish List.”

Of course, let us know what you think!
