"What are you AppTo tonight?"

Reviewed by / Jun 19, 2012

AppTo is a social app-discovery application

Google Play has millions of apps. For this reason, there's a need to filter them in order to find out the best apps and games. That's what AppTo claims to do, from a social approach.

You can sign up the app through Facebook Connect. Actually that's the keystone of the social approach of AppTo: your Facebook friends who are already using AppTo will be added to your friends list. Connecting to friends not on your Facebook list is possible too. All you need to do is: click on the "Share" option from the main screen (top right icon, or menu->share) and send email, sms, facebook message or any other kind of messsage to your contacts. Since then, you'll be able to discover the apps that your friends have and use. Likewise, AppTo shows statistical data of your friends' usage of apps and also helps you to track your own app usage. What's more, you will earn points depending on your individual and social app usage: for example, if your friends install apps after you or if you are the first among your friens to install an app.

You can also set some apps as favorites, see if there's any update for your apps as well as manage and share your installed apps.

From home you can see the apps divided by most used, recently installed and trending apps on blogs, Facebook and Twitter. These categories are constantly updated to make easier the process of app discovery.

The app is set in a simple layout that should be enhanced graphically. For instance, icons in each category could be larger, screenshots of the app could be previewed in the home grid,... In a few words, focus on the scenery. However, navigation through the app is quite intuitive. It's social approach makes the difference. The app is great.
