    Anyone have a good way of watching the new apps come in? Hopefully I am missing some easy way to efficiently browse any new apps.

    I am tired of trolling through the apps store hoping to see something new.
    How about...
    New apps today. listed as they are posted?

    If you look on the left hand side of the App Store in iTunes, there's a menu called Categories. Click on "All iPhone Applications." That will give you a list you can sort by release date.

    Took me a little while to figure this out too, don't worry.

    - Go to the homepage of the app store.
    - In the middle colum, first box, it says, "New Apps"
    - Click, "See all"
    - Then sort by release date.

    EDIT: Gillybean's way is better, it shows all of them. :)

    This one is a little more up-to-date than the one above:

    Question: Are there still new apps being released that have early release dates on them? There were quite a few of these before, and I was wondering if this was still happening? (For example, the Last.fm app was released several days AFTER launch, but people didn't find it because it had a July 5th release date on it).

    If NEW additions continue to have EARLY release dates on them, it's going to make them hard to find by release date. Hopefully this still isn't happening...

    The same thing happened with Vay, which was almost impossible for people to find.

    I think I noticed when checking for new apps that going a few pages in you'll find a couple new APPs that were not there before instead of being listed on the first page.

    I was having the same problem before the rss feeds came out so I decided to make a site that would pull in new apps off of itunes and show them in a digg style listing.

    The only problem with this way, is that if an application is updated, it will appear at the top of the list when searching by release date. Then, if you click on it, the release date will also be updated. Thus, new applications are new and old ones that released an update.

    Very annoying if you ask me.

    Thanks movielover and rizzy, I appreciate the kind words.

    Please keep visiting, vote up a few apps and add comments. I'm trying to get some traffic to the site but it's kinda difficult to get the word out :/

    Great site, but it needs links to the apps in the App Store. :)

    Hey Galley, it has them :). If you click the free or price link it'll open iTunes with the link from the main page or if you click the name of the app when in the detailed view it'll open iTunes.

    I'll try to make something a little more prominent though, I can see how that isn't very intuitive. Thanks for the feedback on it.
