App Name: pickWEB
With so many websites out there today it is hard to figure out which ones are the best. Well there is a new Android and iOS app called pickWEB which helps to categorize websites and give you an easy to use interface to search these sites. For this review, I tested the Android version of the app.
The app is very easy to use and laid out very nicely. When you first turn it on, you will be asked to register. Registration is used save your settings, favorites, and seeing sites from other countries. If you do not want to register, you can run the app is demo mode. After this you will enter the app proper.
There are 3 main buttons in the header, Catalog, Links, and Search. In Search you chose which search engine you wan to use for your search. In Links, there are 15 pre setup sections or groups of links. Here you will find your favorites, and My pickWEB. Finally in Catalog, you will find the meat of the app. Here there are 18 sections and then a huge number of subsections for each one. There are so many categories listed you will be able to find websites for almost anything.
When you click on a category, it will take to you a website that has the screenshots of the different websites listed. I tested the app on my Android phone, but I think this app would work better on the larger screen of a tablet. Pinch to zoom works great and is needed on the small screen. On the developer’s website it says that all websites are hand picked and updated frequently.
This app is a handy tool to find websites that interest you. Being able to setup favorites is key since most of us probably do not want to research website ever time we go online. Overall this is not a bad app but I think the frequency of which the websites listed are updated will be a key factor in whether or not this new app really takes off.
So are you looking for some website to follow and not sure where to start? Head over to pickWEB and see if they can help.
