1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    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.
