You have to feel bad for Yahoo. The one-time dominate web company now seems to be constantly staving off the thought of bankruptcy as a result of failing to transition into the mobile market as its counterparts have.
But that doesn’t mean that it’s giving up on the mobile world. Last year, the company launched an iOS app to help you search for mobile applications. And now it’s just unveiled a web-based portal with a similar function…
Tired of browsing through the App Store to find applications? Yahoo wants you to try its new app search page. Admittedly, the page has a couple of interesting features, including a “trending now” component, and an app discovery gallery.
The search engine can locate apps from both iTunes and the Android Market, and results can be sorted by either price or category. Once you’ve found an app you like, you can simply scan its QR code to download it to your device. Cool.
Have you tried Yahoo’s search page? What do you think of it?
