We Absolutely Do Not Need a Best Buy-Curated App Directory

On paper, Best Buy is now offering a new curated directory for Android and iOS apps. In reality, they're just slapping their logo over the directory already offered by Appolicious and tasking a stockboy with making a few featured picks.

According to TechCrunch, Best Buy Blue Shirts' App Picks will be prominently featured, offering people the chance to narrow down picks to specific stores and employees. If these employees making the picks are anything like the Best Buy employees I encountered growing up, it will be full of apps that leave your phone vulnerable to security threats, crash every two minutes and generally make your life harder. No. Thank you. [Best Buy App Discovery Center via TechCrunch]
