The First Web Based App Search for your iPhone is Here

Being already out for desktop, App Search engine KNICKET now released its mobile web interface for iPhone. It feels like an native app but it´s purely web based: Knicket helps finding the best apps with filters like the price slider, age filter, minimum rating filter and the in-app-purchase-filter.

Just visit and save it to your homescreen.

Filter based app search engine Knicket enables the user to find the best apps and games in the app jungle on the iPhone. It works with an asynchronous database to provide a near real-time search experience. Knicket allows to search the Appworld in depth, before downloading or purchasing an app.

Knicket Filter

A variety of features and filters helps you find the best app to suit your need:

* The tag cloud to narrow down your search through semantic algorithms.

* The priceslider allows to select a price range while the age filter allows users to select an age range, such as apps made just for kids.

* The minimum rating filter: Display only applications with 3, 4, or 5 stars.

* The “in-app-purchase” filter. It allows to exclude applications that have (sometimes hidden) purchases within the games/apps.

* After using the filters, results can be sorted by downloads, rating or relevance.

* The Appmesh. It recommends certain apps based on one that a user can select.
Knicket makes searching for apps easier and let´s you discover the Appsphere like never before, it has even an option to search for Android.

Knicket has no hidden in-app-purchases, no sponsored app links, no fake or paid recommendations. To keep Knicket free it shows only clearly separated advertising.

So far Knicket features only english language based apps. Please check back for updates.
