Yahoo adds a new service to his research, as well as sites, images, videos and news from 8th of this month you can also search apps and games for smartphones . The service is now active only in the U.S. and we do not know if and when he arrives in Italy.

The interface is the same as for the other search pages, but in this case we have several filters, we can decide whether to search just the app for Android or iPhone, free or paid, and also limit your search to certain categories such as the only games for example.
