    Hi Peter,

    I too am an application addict and like you when I search VT I look at the last update, the ratings and number of downloads to evaluate how promising an application might be.

    What frustrated me was that the applications where not organized in a useful manner. I would like to see all “Chatting” applications, all apps that will let me “Scan” documents, etc etc…

    To overcome this problem I started a the OS X Software Map Project, which can be found at

    Right now I have just started populating it with applications that I use but I would be curious to hear your ideas and opinions given our similar interest!

    All the best,
