4- Appsylum

Appsylum is a great website that aggregates hundreds of iOS apps. This is a great alternative to iTune store which is the official Apple directory of apps. What I like about Appsylum is its user friendly interafce and the way it organizes and displays apps to its users, these are features that are absent in iTunes store.
