The worst thing about the App Store is that it's an embarrassment of riches. Mixed in with the zillions of mediocre and silly apps, there are thousands of really valuable apps - ones you might never even know about if someone didn't point you in the right direction.
That's why Macworld has created App Gems, an iPhone app that makes the App Store's collection of over 70,000 apps more manageable. Powered by Macworld's App Guide, App Gems is the place to look when you're trying to discover the next great app to download to your device. And since its debut last week, App Gems has already become the top paid app in Apple App Store.
App Gems has a simple, friendly, and familiar interface: There's an exclusive App Gem of the day, handpicked by Macworld's team of editors and reviewers. You'll be able to read the last two weeks' worth of app picks direct from the Today's Gem tab. From the app's Top Rated tab, you can see the highest-rated apps in each category on the iTunes Store, as determined by Macworld's reviewers. A News tab provides a full-content feed of all the iPhone- and iPod touch-related news that we post on Macworld, right within the app.
App Gems has the following features:
* Daily app recommendations from Macworld editors
* Quick access to themed essential collections of apps
* The latest Macworld.com news delivered straight to your iPhone
* Location-based app suggestions
The $2 App Gems app is an indispensable resource for all iPhone users, developed by Macworld with the programming expertise of the good people of DS Media Labs. For the latest on apps, follow us at @appguide on Twitter or visit the App Guide online.
