App Curation and Discovery: Google Introduces Topical Collections of Great Apps with "Apps Focus" in the Play Store

App Curation and Discovery: Google Introduces Topical Collections of Great Apps with "Apps Focus" in the Play Store | Content Curation World |

Robin Good: Finding good apps is not easy. iOS or Android hve the same problem on this front. Too many apps and too much effort needed to find out which are the really good ones.

To solve this issue Google has just started collectting and organizing some of the best fashion apps available in its store and it has created a page dedicated just to them called "Apps Focus". This is probably the start of an ongoing effort to curate, pick and organize the very best apps available inside the Google Play Store.

"Google just added another featured area that should provide just a little more discoverability for apps with slightly narrower audiences, in the form of the "Apps Focus" section.

The first App Focus? Fashion and Style - bringing together a collection of some of the best apps for the chic-minded."

The Curated Toolkit for iPad Owners: AppStart for iPad (2012 Edition) for iPad

Robin Good: I feel that curated selections of "apps" by a trusted source is definitely an area where people will be willing to pay to get good advice while saving time and money to choose what tools to use on their new iPad. 


The new interesting aspect is that the availability of different apps and software has 

increased so much that the ability for someone to provide reliable advice and selection of what is really useful and effective becomes by itself a valuable and monetizable service.


"AppStart is the first app to download on your iPad: An app starter kit with all the essential apps you'll ever need. 

AppStart takes a fresh and fun approach to teach the average Joe (or insert your name here) how to become more familiar with his/her iPad and apps. NO THIS IS NOT A BORING MANUAL. We’ll fill you on the basic things that everyone should know, and then get you started with the best apps for you. 

Throughout the app you’ll find special sections that tell you apps you'll need to turn your iPad into a specific kind of tool. You'll also be given a list of the essentials apps for certain types of user (lawyers, teachers, musicians, moms, dads, etc). If you see something that sounds interesting to you, click it! We’ll give you the exact set of apps to download and you’ll be on your way, no need to scour the top charts in the App Store."
