Instead of reading countless reviews and trying to sift through the thousands of apps on app stores, if you're ever looking to try out a new app, there's no better way than to get app recommendations from your friends. This is exactly what Homer is designed to do, providing an intimate look at what apps your friends have installed on their devices.

The Homer app asks you to provide a screengrab of your phone screens to show off what's currently loaded to your device. When browsing the screenshots of a friend's phone, it's as easy as tapping on that app to be taken to a download page. In addition to creeping the screens of friends, it's also possible to view the apps participating celebrities and other popular users are trying out.
