Homer

Browse and discover your friends apps

Homer allows you to find out what apps your friends (or people that are trending, including celebrities) have downloaded by sharing screenshots you have taken of your homescreen. The developer has given some thought to privacy, as you can hide apps, or only allow followers to see them. It's simple and straightforward and, while you could just use it to spy on your friends, it's actually quite a useful tool for app recommendation. A good addition to Homer would be the ability to search by category. View full description

Browse your friend's phones and find the apps you're missing!

With Homer, you can browse the apps of people you care about and download them directly through the App Store.

To share your phone, you provide us screenshots of your iPhone or iPod home screens, and we'll take care of the rest to let you show off your apps to your friends.

Once you're in, you can browse the apps on your friends' phones and the apps of celebrities and other trending users. Tap an app on anyone’s phone to be taken to the App Store page to download.

Note about screenshots and privacy: We hide the red notification badges on your apps automatically for people viewing them, and you can hide any individual app you want to keep hidden.
