If your iOS user device is brimming with countless apps, you probably like to share some of the best ones with other users on occasion. A new website service called Appetite.io allows you to upload or send through email a screenshot of your iPhone’s homepage and share links to the apps it detectes in the screenshot.
Appetite.io creates a graphic list of apps captured in the screenshot, along with iTunes Store links for each application. In the app’s beta stage, the service only works for the iPhone, and not other iOS devices. The site’s homepage also includes a link to Ashton Kutcher’s home screen. See the screenshot below.
The list of depicted applications also includes a brief description, price, and the name of the developer. On top of all that, you can claim a unique URL to your list of applications.
In a few trial runs of the service, Appetite.io had trouble making the links, and the screenshots had to be re-uploaded. The site also listed apps there which were not in the screenshot.
Trial tests also revealed that if you upload a screenshot of apps in a folder, Appetite.io cannot adequately capture the included apps. It’s best to have apps on a single home screen, like the one shown below.
Appetite.io is similar to Homescreen.me, which displays uploaded screenshots of your iOS devices, including the iPad and iPod touch. The Homescreen.me service however does not include links to individual apps.
Appetite.io is a free service, and it does not require registration to use it.
