Yahoo! on Wednesday began helping people navigate the sea of applications available for Apple iPhones or mobile gadgets powered by Google-backed Android software.
App Search for personal computers and a free AppSpot program for smartphones were crafted to help people find what they seek at Apple's online App Store or the Android Market.
"Together, they take the guesswork out of finding apps that fit your life," Yahoo! said in a blog post.
"App Search and AppSpot allow you to zero in on any app by showing matching app titles with a full comprehensive description, price, overall star rating from users and screenshots in one spot."
The App Store boasts more than 425,000 of the mini-programs for Apple gadgets, while the Android Market was reported to have about 200,000 and growing.
