Apple’s appstore is growing enormously every day and it become very difficult to choose right application for your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Today we will be taking a look at seven of the best appstore search engines which can be used to search, download and install free mobile apps making your iPhone usage experience even greater.

Top 7 iPhone, iPod touch, iPad App Search Engines

1.Bing’s Visual Search


Bing helps you for finding apps for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch without firing up the iTunes Apps store. Just navigate to Top iPad Apps, narrow down your search results by category (Productivity, Games, Office, etc), choose whether you are looking for free app or paid ones (and if so, you can also specify the price range) and there you have all the apps that you may be looking for.

2. Google Search for Mobile


What better search engine than the mighty Google. This mobile specific variant of the world’s most popular and arguably the best search engine is as great as the original one. Google Search for mobile enables users to search for iPhone and Android apps easily. It displays results from the Android Marketplace and iPhone App Store and apps can be sorted based on their relevance and user ratings.

3. AppStoreHQ


AppStoreHQ combines the features of a mobile app search engine, latest tech news related to iPhone, Android and other smartphones, cool app reviews and Twitter feeds all in a single portal useful for everyone. AppStoreHQ sorts out all the best iPhone and Android mobile apps according to their popularity and lists them out n top making it easier to navigate through them.

4. Chomp


Chomp is a app discovery engine and rovides the best way to find apps through a unique combination of app search and personalized recommendations on the fly using keyword. Its goal is to return results that are as relevant as a good Web search engine, and its user interface – with summary cards for each app it finds rather than a plain-text list of results – is slick and effective.

5. UQuery


UQuery is a mobile app search engine which primarily covers iPhone and iPod touch apps. Several filters are available to sort out search results and apps such as relevance by ratings, user reviews, release dates etc. uQuery also features a star rating system and recommendations features to help users find better apps for their mobile phones.

6. Mimvi


Mimvi is a new mobile app search engine so it might not support all the mobile platforms right now. However, it covers iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and web apps and improves search results by including a feature ‘People who searched this item also searched…’ which helps get better search results.

7. App Explorer


App Explorer is a great way to search on iTunes for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch apps. Apps can be filtered by category, price, or user rating and further sorting options such as price, popularity, rating, or app release dates can also be applied. App Explorer also features a Price Alert feature which informs the user if any of their favorite apps has a price drop.

    I think Buzzdock is also really useful in finding mobile phone apps. It picks up the latest feed from social media sites since it’s a realtime search engine. I’d say it’s worth trying.
