Are you waiting for those cool apps on iPhone and Android to appear on the Windows Phone Store so you can install them on your Windows Phone?

Do you search the Store now and then just to see if your favorite app, like Pandora, Snapchat, SoundCloud, Pinterest or whatever has arrived?

Or maybe you are looking for an app related to your favorite hobby or interest?

Are you tired of looking through all apps in the Store that's matching your query but is not the one (also known as "false positive") every time you make the same query?

Then AppDetective is perfect for you!!

AppDetective cannot magically convert the app to the Windows Phone platform, but it can tell you when it has arrived!

Just enter what you are looking for and AppDetective periodically checks if the app has arrived. 

Key features
- Periodical background search on the Windows Phone Store
- Supports Live Tiles with notification of new apps matching your query (remember to pin at least the main app tile to your start screen!)
- Keeps track of the apps you already have examined
- Add as many queries you like

*** AppDetective is also available in a Premium version without ads. ***
- Bugfixes
