Great way to find new apps

Great categories, some were exactly what I wanted before installing the app, but all are good. The Xbox games and price drop category really need to be built in to the actual store. I would love to see a few more categories in the future. I like the direct marketplace links and the in-app descriptions. Tend to see a lot of the same apps staying in each category for a long tome.

Good shortcut

AppStars allows you to quickly browse through only worthwhile apps instead of having to dig through the thousands of junk apps that clutter the windows store. It is a great shortcut, though I do wish it had more customizable categories.

Great App

This app is very useful and is a lot more organized than the windows store. It gives you all the top apps in a nice organized form. Overall this is a great app and I would highly recommend it.

Very helpful

I've gotten some great suggestions from this app. It's great how it takes the guesswork out of searching for noteworthy apps in the Store. With all the junk out there, this app definitely makes your search easier and, at the very least, offers a great Launchpad from which to start.

Makes finding new apps fun!

App Stars makes my Surface more fun every day by helping me find new apps to play with. It should be incorporated into the Windows 8 Store app!

Apps shown in alternate order, great for browsing

You don't see the same old apps. These are great for browsing when you don't have anything in mind.

Great for Finding Apps

This app seems to fill a gap that the Microsoft app store has for finding the best applications. Because most apps have so few reviews, this app helps by setting the filters for you. Overall it does a decent job of finding the best apps. Of course it is limited to deciding what is best by ratings, number of downloads, etc. As the store matures, this app should only get better.
