Thumbs Up

  • cost is only $3.99
  • both iPad and iPhone versions
  • no registration or sign in required
  • well organized – easy and logical to use without any instruction
  • great help page
  • saves time searching for similar apps – much faster than using the “Search Store” function in the Apple Apps Store
  • in the above two screen saves we used this app to find lots of related apps on two of our favorite safety apps – “NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards” andTornado by American Red Cross
  • just plain “FUN” to use!

Thumbs Down

  • Over 50% of the time this app will find unrelated/offbeat/irrelevant apps that are absolutely worthless;  but when it does work as it should, you’ll be amazed at what it finds and will feel like you hit-the-jackpot!
