AppBrain syncs Market, adds filtering by popularity and OS version

AppBrain has updated both its website and Android Market sync application to make discovering new Android apps even easier. AppBrain MarketSync has recently been updated to include a new feature that reveals popular apps from the past 24 hours or 7 days.  The app also cross-references time and downloads to reveal the most popular new apps, apps that have dropped in price, and provides filtering by free or paid apps.

Another feature you’ll love is that has been updated to allow filtering by Android version. That means all you CLIQ and Hero users can stop complaining about downloading apps that aren’t compatible with 1.5. AppBrain will not display certain apps that require more recent versions of Android that your phone does not support. The same can be done for anyone who wishes to filter by 1.6, 2.0, or 2.1.

We recently highlighted AppBrain as a great service that can sync downloads between the desktop and Android phones. Android users browse the Market online, mark which apps they want to download, and then install the apps through a pseudo-sync/bookmark application. Between the new features and the recent filtering of “spam” apps, AppBrain has become even more appealing.
