AppStoreHQ just released a new feature that they think you’ll like: they’ve turned AppStoreHQ + Twitter into the biggest “social recommendations” engine for iPhone apps on the web.

AppStoreHQ now offers personalized iPhone app recommendations to anyone who tweets about iPhone apps, in any language, anywhere in the world. These recommendations are based on the largest set of social data about iPhone apps outside of iTunes itself, a dataset that grows every time someone, somewhere tweets about their new favorite app.

How do you get your own set of personalized iPhone app recommendations? It’s easy:

* Tweet about the apps you love
* Include the iTunes link (or a link to the AppStoreHQ detail page for the app) – shortened URLs are expected and work just fine
* Make sure to include *one* of the following keywords / hashtags in your tweet:

+ iPhone / #iPhone
+ iPhone app / #iPhoneapp
+ iPhone apps / #iPhoneapps
+ AppStoreHQ / #AppStoreHQ

* Visit your personal page on AppStoreHQ anytime to view your current recommendations (we turn new tweets into structured data every hour or so and update our recommendation calculations daily)
* Just log in and click the Profile link in the upper-right hand corner

In addition to recommendations by person, they’ve also turned their social recommendations engine on its side to offer information about each application. Love a particular app and want to see who else shares your views? Look for the “Fans” photostrip on any AppStoreHQ app detail page. You can click through to view each person’s recent app-related tweets and recommendations and, if you like their style, visit their Twitter profile to follow them directly.

AppStoreHQ is incredibly excited about this new capability and they hope you are too. You can learn more about this new feature set on their blog. If you have suggestions or questions about our new social recommendations feature (or anything else), just email them at
