    I know touchArcade is the best GAMES site, but what's a good place to check out all the utilitarian Apps? It's hard enough to keep up on the games, i could be missing out on some cool functional stuff too.

    Appreciate the mention. The "problem" with appshopper and similar sites is it's unfiltered. There's a lot of value in that filter, which is what we try to do with TouchArcade -- post hand-chosen items that are the most interesting.

    It's not AppShopper's purpose to be that filter... it's for the data-addicts, though there is room to maybe highlight good apps and add some other user interaction.

    Going back to the original question, not sure what's the best general app site. I haven't found one that appeals to me.

    That's what i was getting at. Sites that just list all the apps are about as useful as the app store itself. I was hoping some other sites had been making the dedication to reviewing the best apps in the way toucharcade handles the games. I appreciate everyones suggestions though.

    IGN.com does a "This week in Apps" article which highlights some noteworthy apps each week. games or otherwise.

    not exactly what you were looking for, but you might find it useful.

    iPhoneAppy is also a decent review site, with detailed videos of all the apps they review.
    They do some games, but a lot of the other more serious apps too.
    They also have an optimized iPhone version of the site, also with videos.
