If you like tinkering with your iPhone or iPod touch but get frustrated at the interface on the iTunes App Store, you now have another option. AppleBeacon has been created to take advantage of Apple's affiliate programme that shares five per cent of the revenue from certain iTunes sales with referring parties.
The interface is fast and certainly better than iTunes, but the fact remains that purchases and installing the software on an iPhone still require iTunes at some point.
Users who don't want to browse in iTunes or who have Linux computers, for which the Apple software is unavailable, can now browse the software through AppBeacon's site instead.
Still, it hs to be good to miss all the ads and you can bookmark applications and permanently ignore others. That has to be a bonus.
