We don’t normally discuss apps here on Global Geek News, but I have found an app worth talking about called the Big App Show.The Big App Show with Adam Curry
What is the Big App Show? The Big App Show was created by No Agenda host Adam Curry to solve the problem of how to find great apps. How often have you found yourself browsing Apple’s App Store for the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad only to find the same apps all the time or apps with mixed reviews that you don’t know if they are worth the money and bandwidth to buy? The Big App Show is the perfect solution to this problem.
Rather than looking at Apps in the App Store and wondering what they are like based on some screenshots, descriptions and user reviews, Curry takes you on a tour of the gems that he finds in the App Store. With hundreds of thousands of Apps now available, it is hard to find what is good to download which is why The Big App Show is so valuable. Thanks to the Big App Show, I am constantly finding amazing apps I would have never heard about otherwise.
Lets talk about what the Big App Show really is. The Big App Show is an app that shows daily “appisode” (aka episodes) videos of Adam Curry playing with cool apps. There is a new app every day and with version 2.0, there are now push notifications so you will always be informed when a new appisode is out. With the videos, you get to see a screen capture from Adam’s iPhone so that you can follow along with him as he uses the app so you can get a real feel for what it is like to use the app. From facial manipulation apps to apps for getting a taxi, the Big App Show showcases all kinds of great apps. The appisodes are short (2-4 min) so they are great for watching while you are having your cup of coffee in the morning or while doing anything where you have a couple of minutes to kill.
If you have an Apple iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, and are always wondering what apps are worth checking out, you owe it to yourself to check out the Big App Show (It was even featured on USA Today last week). Adam Curry is doing something amazing with this app and it is definitely worth your time! And the best part is that it is FREE!
