AppHero AppHero’s free iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch application
AppHero’s free iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch application, which uses multiple methods to recommend App Store applications to its users. We spoke to AppHero’s Jordan Satok who explained that AppHero primarily uses a user’s Facebook and Twitter data in order to serve application recommendations.
AppHero uses your Facebook data such as things that you have “Liked.” For example, if you liked a set of sports teams, TV shows, movies, or places, AppHero can use this information to recommend applications related to your favorite sports teams, TV programs, and apps that are region-specific to places you “liked” or have been to. Of course, access to your Facebook information must be explicitly approved by you. Satok assures that this is done securely and that only information relevant to creating application recommendations is scanned
