Yahoo! AppSpot helps you find the right apps for your smartphone.

Yahoo! recently revealed a new tool that promises to be a “fun, fast way to search and discover” the thousands of available iPhone and Android apps.

“Yahoo AppSpot, a new mobile application, works like a flashlight in the darkness of more than 425,000-plus apps in the Apple App Store and 200,000 apps in Android Market. It also offers a new way to take the guesswork out of finding relevant and interesting apps for mobile users,” Yahoo said in a statement.

The app finds matching app titles and gives description, price, screenshots, as well as overall star rating from users. It also delivers daily suggestions which are based on what users already have downloaded. A computer-based version of this app is also available.

The Yahoo AppSpot is in competition with GetJar, which started its app shop in 2005 and publicizes itself as the world’s largest open app store.
