    I tip to help you find THAT App quickly and easy.
    I thought i would let all you on a neat little trick i happened upon by accident one day, and in the MacWorld Aust forum, i first submitted this in, has it being published in their Readers Tip Section in the up coming issue of the MacWorld Australia Magazine and i win a great bag for Notebook and iPads, so i want to let you all in on it

    I have found a way to search either iTunes or the Mac App Store for Apps so much easier.
    With this snippet
    Code:
    site:itunes.apple.com/us/
    you can get pages and pages of Apps that you want. Let me explain.
    With Safari you copy and paste it into the URL bar (or your favourite search engine) then in front of it (I want a clipboard manager) you type ClipBoard Manager then a space and hit return, and the search engine will bring you pages and pages of clipboard managers that are in the iTunes store as well as the Mac App Store. You will Know the difference because if they are in the MAS it will tell you, see screenshot.
    Now if you want to filter it to just the MAS type "Clipboard Manager Mac App Store site:itunes.apple.com/au/ " so you just add Mac App Store after the item your looking for.
    This works with anything you can think off and usually brings the 5 Stars to the top of the page.
    HTH and have fun. I have it bookmarked and use it every day

    Try it out you will be surprised

    I have used the US at the end of it but i use au , but you can use what ever country you are in. I have found some gems, but its just so easy to use. I have it in my Safari Bar so its just a click away.

    Good job Brent! Didn't see your post earlier or would have commented on it.
    Here's one for finding e-books, found it somewhere and don't really remember how to use it.
    (ebook | ebooks | books | book) (*.pdf | *.chm | *.rar | *.zip | *.mobi | *.epub | *.azw) "parent directory" intitle:"index of /"
    If you figure it out let me know ok?

    Congratulations Brent. That looks like a really nice Velo travel bag. Keep submitting those great tips and who knows, maybe you'll win a new iPhone or iPad. Wouldn't that be great?

    And you can also manipulate it to suit your needs as well, like taking all but the Kind of books your looking for too. Like i deleted everything except .epub and it bought up just .epubs and the came with .mobi. Nice find Craig, ill bookmark this too. Cheers
