Most useful app ever!
I LOVE this app! I originally got it to learn how to use the iCloud (which it explains better than anything I found online or from apple) and discovered TONS of great new apps I never knew were out there.. And I'm always in the app store. The apps are quality, free or moderately priced, it explains the apps and how it will help
you, and there's so many categories.. I've been on it for days!
One improvement I would suggest is the artist category I've been searching for apps to help artists that work away from the iPhone and found some figure apps for drawing, painting guides, etc. And it would be great to see the best of them in there
Very helpful guide for first time users, but many of the apps they recommend were poorly rated by reviewers and I came across several that said were not available in this county (I'm in the US). Also would have liked to see more free alternatives to the paid apps. But all in all, helpful in getting the lay of the land. I highly recommend their other app, Apps Gone Free - love it! Had saved me a ton of money and introduced me to a whole range of apps I wouldn't have come across otherwise.
I actually don't mind the layout at all! It's nice to have something different than just the standard "book-ish" design in an app like this! I've got several other apps similar to this, but more along the lines of "how to" than "what to", and they're just your basic, average, ho-hum book-style. This adds a bit of fun to it, I think! (I bet poor devs hate reviews like this and the few below mine: classic "you can't please 'em all" syndrome - lol!)
