Lumiappaday #283: AppVegas demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900

 AppVegas is another fantastic app for finding even more apps. I was quite surprised how nice it looks as I thought it was only a ‘one arm bandit’ type thing where you spin the app wheel to reveal a random app at random but there’s a really nicely laid out featured section, categories, and app layout.

In the screenshot above the top two rows actually slide left/right. In the app wheel, you can shake the phone to spin the wheel.

Feeling lucky? Let AppVegas find you the best apps and games in the marketplace! Spin the slot machine, browse categories, hot/featured apps of the day, and more – AppVegas makes finding apps FUN again!


From the creators of the popular Windows Phone News and Weave apps, comes AppVegas. Like a mashup of UrbanSpoon and the Marketplace app, AV lets you use a slot machine style “guided search” to find the best apps you may have missed. Apps are grouped by meta-categories such as “gaming” or “fun”, and then classified by “hot”, “new”, “all-time”, or “any” and lastly by being free/paid/trial.


We pre-filter ALL the apps in the marketplace to get rid of the junk so you don’t have to look at it! Any app served up to you has been pre-screened to pass a minimum user rating. Now you can spend more time finding awesome apps!


Full list of features:


• Shake your phone to spin the slot machine and find new apps

• Featured and new and trending apps of the day

• Browse categories, viewing hot apps, all-time best apps, and sorted by download rank

• Search for apps by name/keyword
