Don’t have time to sift through 60,000+ apps? Me neither. Sure, I spent the first couple evenings perusing through iTunes, but in the end, I had downloaded a mere 16 apps. That’s it… just 16! Apple’s television commercials had worked - ingraining in me a desire to have virtual bubblewrap and a digital level. If only there were an easier way.

And now there is - 16apps.com. A user simply submits their social media username (e.g. Twitter, FriendFeed, or Last.fm) and 16apps searches through their posts… highlighting aspects of their life and recommending relevant apps with links to the iTunes App Store.
