Yahoo Launches App Search for Android and iOS

Good news for Android and Apple phone users out there. If you were finding it a pain to search for apps on iTunes App Store or the Android Market, Yahoo has just launched a new service called App Search which allows you to search for apps on these two App markets.

You can quickly search for apps on both platforms by just switching between the iPhone and Android links in the search screen. App search also allows you to filter your search by categories and by the Price Filter (choose between paid and free). When you find the app you are looking for, all you need to do is to click on price button to initiate the download.

Yahoo has made things simpler by by allowing you to head out directly to the iTunes site or Android Market, as the case may be, or send a link to your phone and a QR code option for you to scan the code using your phone to head to the download page without typing anything on your phone.

Don’t feel like searching, just browse around the apps to find new apps for you phone as well using the App Search site. Take the Yahoo App Search site for a test drive and let us know your comment about this service.

Hat tip to @AtulChitnis for the heads up
