The number of apps available for a particular platform is a double-edged sword. Your platform won’t succeed if there aren’t apps available for it, but if there are too many apps users may not be able to find apps that are of value to them.
What’s ironic is that Google, the king of search, has an Market in which it can be relatively difficult to find quality apps that fit your needs.
aFreeware is an alternate Market that tries to solve this dilemma by limiting the number and type of apps that it lists. First off, they only include freeware apps, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on your opinion of paid apps. The second, and probably the best thing they do is to only include apps that have been user-reviewed. They also include a more high-level approach to categorizing apps: Latest, Featured, Widgets, and the fall-though “Categories”, which functions much like all the other market’s out there.
aFreeware is compatible with most of the Android-powered devices, is free, and can be downloaded from their website.
