This app was very slow and would not load any of the replacements. If I was u I would not download this app because this app is just a waste of time

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

Crashes most of the time

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.

Very bad it keeps closing the app

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.
