Hey guys, I was wondering what you do to search for android apps on the desktop. I’m frustrated that the market has such a whimpy desktop website. They only highlight the “top” apps there and say for a complete listing use your handset. I like perusing the market on the bigger real estate of the desktop. What are your suggestions to find apps using the desktop? Love the show.
