While it may feel like we’re suffering through social media overdose, I still bump into a site every now and then that actually makes sense. Welcome AppBoy - a community focused on mobile apps for iPhone/iTouch, Android and Blackberry users.

You can easily find recommended apps by category, device, rating - as you’d expect. But unlike other app stores, you’re not limited by geography. Best of all, mobile app users can make suggestions for developers - and the rest of the community can then vote them up or down, Digg-style.

And what if you’re a developer? You are able to create a profile on AppBoy, along with a vanity URL, in which you can showcase your portfolio (and get paid). Neat.

Round it off with a visually appealing design and whack of intuitive functionality, and AppBoy is well worth a peak.
