I recently wrote about a recommendation app, App Social, available only for Nokia Windows phone apps. App Social has now been made available in the Windows 8 store so now everyone who has a Windows 8 computer or tablet can download this app to help them find other great apps.
You can go to the Windows store to download the app. Or, here is a little trick you might not be familiar with. On the Windows 8 homepage with all the tiles, just start typing appsocial (or anything you are ever searching for) and it will automatically open a search box with the word in it. Just hit enter and you will be taken directly to App Social in the store.
Once you download the app, in addition to finding recommendations, you can also make your own lists of recommendations. App Social, is very social as its name suggests. You can follow others in App Social so that their lists will come up in your activity. And, there are leaderboards for top users, top apps, top app lists, trending users, trending apps and trending app lists.
I have already made two lists on my Nokia Windows phone (which I received for becoming a Nokia App Social Brand Ambassador), which now also appear in App Social in the Windows Store. And I recently created a list specifically for the Windows Store, Top Music Apps.
Word of Mouth recommendations have always been a great way to make purchasing decisions. And everybody loves lists. So combining them into a recommendation app is brilliant. App Social is still fairly new, and will get better and better as more people join, so tell all your friends and join together. Learn more about App Social on Nokia Windows phones.
Full Disclosure: I am a Nokia App Social Brand Ambassador. However, I was not required to write this post and all opinions are my own.
