Openappmkt.com – an App Store alternative



By Bryan Sanders posted August 31, 2010 at 03:55AM


OpenAppMkt (Open App Market)

If you are looking for alternative applications for your iPhone, you may want to add Openappmkt to your home screen. Openappmkt is similar to the App Store but the apps do not have to be approved by Apple first. You will find some great unapproved by Apple applications here. The apps are legal and will not void your warranty (HTML 5). As seen on Attack of the Show (AOTS).

You will find apps for jailbroken (Cydia) and non-jailbroken iPhones. Visit http://openappmkt.com on your iPhone and follow the prompts on the screen. You will add the icon/bookmark ‘+’ to your home screen and you’re done. Simply visit the  market and chose from your favorite apps. The icons/apps will appear on your home screen as they usually do with App Store apps.

Note: Android support is said to be coming soon.

Current Top 5 Apps

  1. Angry Birds
  2. We Rule
  3. Words with Friends
  4. Foursquare
  5. Gowalla

Again these are my personal favorites at the moment and they could change. Feel free to comment and post some of your favorite Apps. I am open to suggestions and maybe that hidden gem app I have yet to discover.

Zynga may go Live

There are talks that the social-gaming company Zynga may be launching their own network. The rumor has it that Zynga will be launching a social-gaming network called “Zynga Live”.

If you use Facebook then many of you have seen or played one of Zynga’s games. Zynga’s applications are on Facebook with games like Farmville, Yoville, Petville, Fishville, Mafia Wars…..and a few more. Zynga may be leaving Facebook for its own independent network.

Zynga also has applications in the App Store on your iPhone or iPod Touch. I currently have Vampires, Mafia Wars and Street Racing on my iPhone 3GS. Zynga also has some job openings on their Web site since the company seems to be growing and they need new game ideas.
