iPhone app search and browse: there’s a new one-eyed man in town…

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.” – Anonymous

We just shipped a major upgrade to our search and browse functions at AppStoreHQ. It sounds crazy to say it, but as far as we can tell we now offer hands-down the most useful iPhone app discovery experience on the Web (not to mention the phone itself).

Want to know how many apps there are in the ‘fart’ category? Turns out a whopping 165 (!) apps match that keyword. What do they cost? Most (118) are priced between $0.01 and $0.99. How good are they (whatever that means)? Well, only four have a rating of 4 stars or more.

If you’re curious about the iPhone app phenomenon and are looking for a way to slice and dice the data, AppStoreHQ is now the place to start. And if you know of a site that does it better, please leave a comment setting us straight.

P.S. – If you run an iPhone-centric blog or site and want to offer this same search experience on your domain, just give us a shout – we’d like to help.
