App Social by Nokia is a great app for making app discovery a bit more social rather than diving deep and across the breadth in the Windows Phone Store or Windows Store.
App Social first arrived as part of Nokia Collection on Lumia devices evolving from an erstwhile app called App Highlights. A while back the app made way to the Windows Store exclusively for Nokia Lumia 2520 tablets. The app is now available broadly for all Windows 8 devices.
App Social is a fun way to find new apps based on what your friends are using and recommend. The Windows 8 version is pretty similar to the Windows Phone version and allows you to browse and download apps recommended by most popular users (like Windows Phone Central *wink*).
You can sign up to create your own profile and a list of apps to share with your friends and the community. As you get more followers, you climb up the leaderboard. From within the app, you can search for apps, applists, and even users.
While the app on Windows Phone allows you to add and browse Windows Phone apps only, App Social for Windows 8 allows adding and browsing both Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps. You can download App Social for free from the Windows Store here. Give it a spin, and let us know how you like it.
