FREE smart phone apps on Buxr?

submitted on November 6, 2009 by phunkeey in "Buxr Website / Contests"
Has anyone considered having a free app of the day section?

Nobody really posts apps as deals because not everybody has an iphone, but as a recent NYTimes article points out "App Phones" (not just the iphone) are the latest thing, and soon nearly everyone will have one: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11.....one&st=cse

There are lots of sites that focus on free apps, but most are, well, crap. Buxr could specialize by separating the wheat from the chaff and focusing on posting one good free app per day in a highlighted spot.

    Sounds great. If enough of you (iPhone and Android fans) get together I can set aside time to dedicate a page just for the apps. These would go into our main deals stream but you would be able to browse them separately.

    The only potential problem I see with this idea that smart phone apps are still a somewhat narrow niche but as you rightly note - this is changing fast.

    So, how many of you do have an iPhone or iPod Touch and are regularly playing with the apps on it? Any Android phone users?

    I don't have a Blackberry and a Samsung Instinct. I browse this site on the Instint all teh time from work. I am going to be getting an Android phone within the next 2-3 months...I'm just waiting to make sure all the bugs are worked out before I buy a new phone.
    I am always downloading different apps for my Blackberry and I am sure I will on an Android once I get it.

    Sorry about last post - The first sentence should be "I have a Blackberry and an Instinct"

    I just noticed it! Sorry

    What did we ever decide to do about posting these apps or good sites that rate them? Don't you think we should include apps for all smart phones now?

    I happened to find 2 review sites, http://freeapps.org/ and http://www.appfairy.com/ to add to the list.
    The first one includes apps for Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, and Nokia, too.

      With so many places dedicated for free apps, posting them on Buxr would be spreading ourselves thin. We can create a general discussion topic (for all free smartphone apps, one one per platform, e.g iPhone, Android, etc) and if you see a particularly good app, just leave a comment with a link. Other than that, I don't have any better idea.
