    shame 90,000 are just crap

  • iamallama

    Agreed. If we only had a marketplace that can filter that crap out.

    If we only had a marketplace that can filter that crap out WITHOUT turning into the App Store.

      Yea but even the app store doesn’t filter that crap out.

  • staciedaisy is a good start, they have a long ways to go tho.

  • Curration now

    Well start your own review blog or make a curator app. Dedicated curation is often needed to deal with this kind of stuff, but curation should not be censorship.

    Essentially you don’t want to rely on “crowds” here. You want to rely on people who care enough to spend time to really evaluate a few apps.
