There are tons and tons and tons of apps out there. For every category of apps, there is a ton of options to choose from. So, how do you decide which app is going to get to grace your mobile device? How does a particular app catch your attention over all the rest? Is it the rating in the store? Whether it’s free or paid? Maybe it is the reviews you read everywhere?
It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for a calendar app, a launcher, or a camera: there’s a ton of selection in each category and a ton of apps that could either be garbage or ridiculously useful.
So, what determines the one you’re going to try out? Do you trust the rating system? As we’ve seen recently with the Blackberry messenger fiasco, the rating system can easily be gamed and votes can be bought. Maybe then it is the number of total downloads that helps steer you in the right direction? Perhaps it is the reputation of the developer? And so, the eternal question rages on: How do you choose your apps?
