Where to find great apps

Product Hunt

Product Hunt is a brilliant website for finding a whole variety of different media; whether that’s apps, games, movies, or various other bits of technology. Because they cover such a broad spectrum and aren’t focused entirely on apps, it’s a brilliant go-to destination for a bit of everything, but it does cover a good range of apps that are well worth looking into if you love something new on your phone or tablet.

Product Hunt also lets you browse apps that are made by their own community, which means if you have a talent for creating apps yourself, then you can absolutely upload them to the website for other peoples’ use.

CNET

There’s very little that CNET don’t have a hand in when it comes to providing us with reviews of all things technological and entertainment; including great apps. Their reviews give a good run down of application features, including photographs, screenshots, an “at a glance” review,and then a broken down in depth review.

The website’s design is relatively clean, easy to navigate and has a search function so if you’re looking for something specific you don’t have to trawl their archives before you can find it. CNET tends to focus on apps developed through official channels, but independent developers also have reviews featured on the website.

Life Hacker

Life Hacker’s main purpose is to provide website users with tips to “get things done”, and what better way to do this than to let us all know which apps are worth our time? Life Hacker have a huge range of “life hacks” on a range of topics that can help you get the most from your life, with their technology section housing a run down of single application reviews, as well as block reviews of apps for specific purposes.

Unlike Product Hunt and CNET, Life Hacker is best used when you’re looking for general suggestions for which apps could be of benefit to you, rather than when you’re looking for reviews of specific apps.
