Crashes too much

Riley · 2/17/2015

None of the apps I want are on it

Ok..

Anna · 1/10/2015

This app is good but most of the apps that you search you will most likely not find a replacement.

Pavan · 1/5/2015

Crashes most of the time

Jon · 9/18/2014

This app sounded like a good idea but it only gives you the sad fact that there usually isn't a "replacement" app. If the app isn't there when you search, this app will not help you find it.

Good App, but...

Nobody ever adds new alternatives. The same ones have been around for months.

User · 8/24/2014

Very bad it keeps closing the app

Billy · 1/22/2015

Needs updated more often for a 5 star rating, other than that its a great little app tool.

AppDetective is a far better app and the best app discovery app to date. AppSwitch had potential, it has simply fallen flat. It may rise again, until it does, best steer clear.
