    I feel like I can't find anything in the app store unless I'm searching for something specific. The 20 or so categories are nearly useless when they each contain thousands of apps with no subcategories. Education has over 9000 (literally) apps and I can't even sort by age group. I think the app store may be the most poorly-designed app I own.

    Any advice for useful app browsing? Web sites that manage to organize this mess?

    I completely agree

    When you do a search, the search is based on the title of the app, and the keywords the developer entered...

    The only way I have found to browse it is by popular apps, you just have to hope the popular ones are the better of the thousands.

    So yes please, anyone, what is a site that organizes them well?

    Hmmm, I guess we are out of luck. I wonder where I can leave one-star review of the app store?

    Yea, I really wish it was easier to search. I have been wanting to get an app to organize my receipts on the go to place into my budget when I get home so I can quit keeping every single receipt on me. But I know there have to be apps that have weird names that might be useful. Like "Zite", the magazine app, doesn't have the word "magazine" or "news" anywhere in the name of the app at all.

    Isn't that just the Excel program? That seems like a really lame option, IMO.

    That's why I use AppAdvise and AppShopper and sometimes AppDeals.

    I use AppAdvise religiously. Just downloaded AppShopper and it's not BAD, but it's certainly not AppAdvise lol.
