Nokia has launched App Social ( [link] ) , a social discovery app store for users to create a custom list of their favorite apps and follow app lists as well. This makes perfect sense, for example I can create an “all things photos” app list that allows me to share on my Nokia App Social profile. From there, users can follow me or my list of apps which makes it easier the next time someone ask me: how to create a photo collage (I use Diptic for) or what app I use to take notes with (I prefer Evernote ). I’ll have an App Social list to easily share and reference.
