I was just wondering for those of you who have the AppBrain app, if you like it better than the Market and why. I'm trying to see if there is a major difference between the two and if it's worth having it. Also, how is the performance once downloaded?
The biggest difference between them is that with appbrain you can sync your apps with the website and if anything happens to your phone i.e. new ROM, or new phone. You can install all your apps that you had before back on the new ROM or phone.
Performance is the same that i've noticed. Hope this info helps you.
I like the features of AppBrain, such as Hot Today, and Hot This Week. And the sorting features. Not to mention the fact it's almost like a "backup" of my apps. I switch phones a lot and it's nice to keep them all in sync as far as apps go.
From what I can tell, everybody is right on point with what I've discovered. Here's something interesting though: The way I understood it, (I have been known to be wrong) Verizon backs-up your apps as well. (God forbid something happens to your Vascinate)
