appfeed

If you use AppFeed.net's service to monitor apps in the Play Store, then life just got easier for you: there's now an official AppFeed beta app available for you downloading pleasure. The app essentially takes the place of the site on your mobile – it allows you to view, add, or remove apps from your tracking list, as well as keep up with most recent updates.

Naturally, the only requisite to use the app is that you must have an AppFeed.net account, which can be obtained for free right here. Since the app is still beta, there are currently features missing – like the ability to sign up for an account without having to visit the site. Still, if you need to access AppFeed in its rawest form, this is a quick and easy way to do it.

    Why is it that we Droid folks are so obsessed with apps?

    When I compare the average number of apps I see installed on friends' Androids versus Eggphones, Android users usually have a ton more.

    Are we generally more tech affine?
    Is it because we have way more great _free_ apps?
    Or are we just plain crazy?

      Your android friends are generally more tech affine. A big part of crapple users have no clue about anything thats got to do with technology, they've just heard that icrap is the best.

      While I can't remember where I saw it (and I'm ballparking the numbers from memory), about 6 months ago I read a study that said the average Android user had somewhere around 35 (non-system) apps installed while the average iPhone user fell in around 80 installed apps. By contrast, the usage numbers were totally reversed, with Android users running about 75% of their apps regularly and iPhone users were only running about 20% of their apps regularly.

      I think you might be in a statistical minority. Combine that with being a reader of this site, and that's a pretty good thing.

        Thanks for your input.
        I'll investigate that further within my circles.

    Is there an app that lets you find out when apps are on sale vs their sale price and it tells you if its a popular or highly rated app? I know iOS has such an app, and its actually free (*gasp*) but I haven't been able to find one for android

        Thanks! I didn't think anything of it until I saw this article about wishlist apps monitoring. (Sometimes I'm a little lazy)

    OK, so I signed up with the website but am too stupid to figure out how to log into the app?!?

      I signed, too. First you need to click top right on the "Logged in as XXX" .. then go to settings, and then tick the "Enable mobile access" .. after that the QR code will show up on that page .. then you need to go to the mobile app, and there will be an option to scan QR codes :3

        You're a rocket scientist, hu? ;)
        Thanks for helping.

      The new version allows you to login with your username/password, give it a try

    app tracker ? sounds good.
    why google didn't make this feature built in on play store ?

    • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

      I don't think any of the major platforms want to build this feature into the standard interface. It would encourage too many people to wait for apps to go on sale before they buy them, and that almost always leads to several less sales in the long run and all of the sales will be at the lower sale price. It would actually be bad for almost everybody in the long run if this were readily available and well-known to everybody. On a smaller scale, this kind of thing is beneficial because it really is a useful tool for people like us who are more likely to buy apps that we don't necessarily need, just because it drops in price and we'd like to see where it goes or compare it to the things we already have.

    an updated version is on the way to the Play Store, it includes signing in with OAuth/Social, and the ability to register for an account on the device...
