App recommendations based on your tweets & status updates
Too much choice, too little time—it’s a constant theme of the information age. There are 60,000 apps available for the iPhone, but the benefits of using personally relevant apps can almost be negated by the amount of time it takes to discover them. 16apps is a new web service designed to streamline the process. The service scours users’ Facebook, Twitter, FriendFeed or LastFM accounts for information about their hobbies, interests, lifestyle, character and location. It then uses the data to make personalised app recommendations. For instance, if it detects messages or links on a user’s profile related to politics, it may recommend an app like “Political Tweets”; if it finds swear words, it has been known to recommend “Rude Ringtones”.
