With over 200 million smartphone subscribers in the US alone, it is no wonder that apps have become big business for wireless carriers and app makers alike. With an estimated 250,000 apps in the iTunes store and 100,000 in the Android Market, finding the best app for a particular need is difficult and time consuming. Sure you can read hundreds of app reviewing blog posts out there, but wouldn’t you rather watch thorough video reviews instead? With more and more web shows dedicated to doing just that, we thought we’d sort through the clutter and present you with the app review shows that most deserve your precious time and attention:
CNET Tap That App is a relatively newcomer to the app review genre and focuses on apps from all the smartphone operating systems. With a bit of humor to boot, each app is thoroughly reviewed and highly recommended– just as you’d expect from a CNET TV show.
AppJudgmentAppJudgment is a product review show from Revision3 Networks in which hundreds of apps for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, or Windows are reviewed. For practically whichever smartphone you may have, AppJudgment carefully reviews each app, tells you what is worth downloading, and even offers better alternatives for apps that are not quite up to par.
The Android App Show is a tech talk series that reviews apps for the Android phone. If you like your apps reviewed in greater depth and want to listen to opinions and analysis from Android fanatics, this is the right show for you.
