When it comes to search engines Yahoo is one of the more used and certainly one of the first thought of when it comes to finding something on the net. Today the company launched an app which can use their search technology to find over 625,000 apps on both the Android and iTunes app stores.

The new mobile app is called Yahoo! AppSpot. The service will also be available via the web browser at Yahoo App Search for those that do not wish to download the app to their mobile device. As well as finding apps the Yahoo! AppSpot app also recommends apps to users.

The way in which this app is unique to similar ones on the market according to Yahoo is instead of just providing a list of ‘Top Apps’ which would tend to be the same every day; it also would suggest apps that are personal to users’ taste so the list would differ every day.

It is able to do this as it searches your library and from the apps already purchased or downloaded can filter what you would be interested in. according to the article at PCMag, it will only search the library with your permission.

What do you think of this new app from Yahoo? Will you be using it?
