A long time back we wrote about Uquery.com – a typical “search iTunes app store without iTunes” website that let you search apps on the App Store through your browser (instead of the App Store app or iTunes). While that’s gone now, there's another website here.
looks like a beautiful website that will let you search apps on iTunes app store without iTunes. I’m really loving this interface. And there’s a lot of features on Fnd.io that makes it a bookmarkable website. Read on.

- Mac apps
The “All” search gives you the top three results from each section. Clicking on each section gives you more results.
Reviews, YouTube Videos!
The app lists are not just descriptions and screenshots. Fnd.io also searches YouTube for related videos (most of them end up to be reviews of the apps you searched for) and lists them.
One of the best features of all, you can do country-specific search. That small icon on the top-left – click that and you can select a country. This is helpful because many apps are available only in some countries. You can only purchase apps from the country your Apple ID is associated with (more like based on where your credit card info works).
