Official ‘AppShopper’ App Featured in Wired App Guide

Wired, in partnership with Gizmodo, has published an app guide filled with 400 reviews of iOS apps across nearly every category. The guide was released this week and is available in print format on newsstands around the world as well as via a new app that debuted yesterday. The Wired App Guide for the iPad is available in the App Store now for $5.99.

The app operates much like the Wired Magazine app that debuted last year when it comes to navigation. And though it’s available for the iPad only, eschewing tablets and devices on other platforms, reviews of apps available only for Android and Windows Phone 7 devices are included as well.

Our official AppShopper app is featured in this guide, earning a rating of 8/10 in the Lifestyle category. Our app is free (there are ads but they can be removed permanently with a one-time in-app purchase of $.99) and offers you many of the features available on our website, including the ability to see newly-released apps, see the apps that are most popular among AppShopper users, and get push notifications when apps you’ve saved to your Wish List go on sale. It also includes links to app reviews at TouchArcade and 148Apps where available.

The guide is also partially available on Wired’s site here.

What’s not worth the price of admission? The AppShopper app has saved me hundreds by now plus it’s free.


App Shopper — one of my all-time fav apps. Would like to add apps & certain devs to a ‘block list’. I bought the $1 ad-free version. I’m surprised Apple hasn’t bought the company since the AppStore is so ‘busted’.

As for Wired App guide, it might be an interesting read — but I think Wired needs to list itself as ‘tired’. They are so sold out to the corporations that they say nuclear power is “green” and that Windows 7 is acceptable. Wired needs to stand up for geek culture, the open-source open-surf open-access concept which creates the structure of the internet.

In other words, I will not buy anything from Wired at this point.
