Yahoo Releases Search Engine Dedicated to iPhone and Android Apps

The large array of apps available within both the iOS and Android environments is without a doubt good news for users, but at the same time it can be quite confusing to try to find the exact service or feature required.

A solution for this situation comes from an unexpected source. Yahoo has announced the launch of a new search engine capable of sorting through the 350,000 apps available in Apple's App Store, and 200,000 apps from the Android Market.

The Yahoo App Search helps users get app descriptions, price details, ratings and even displays a screenshot for each app. The search engine comes with filtering options by platform, price or genre.

If this is not enough, the new Yahoo search engine features separate tabs to help users find Top Trending, Top Free, Top Paid and Most Reviewed apps. In order to help the service improve, the users are encouraged to rate the apps and give feedback.

James Gammon, Yahoo search product marketing manager, loyal to his company and confident in its capabilities explained "only Yahoo App Search has both the search technology and is device agnostic so can offer users a choice of both Android and iPhone."
