    every time i check to see what new apps are available, there is nothing but sh*tty apps. i know this is an open marketplace, but i think someone really needs to filter out all of the crap apps. maybe this way we will get more main stream app available.

    I suppose one person's crap is another person's app. But yeah, I agree with you, generally speaking. It's a tough nut to crack I'm sure. I certainly wouldn't want a clone of the iTunes App Store!

    Though it's not perfect, AppBrain is an internet-based service that provides a window into the Market from a PC. It tracks the apps on your phone (which can be useful for a variety of purposes) and provides a much better categorization of apps than is available on the market.

    Once you identify an app you want, it puts it in a queue that allows you to download all of the apps in your "queue" to your phone. Very useful app.
