Remember that nifty #Homescreen app from Betaworks that let you create an interactive screenshot of your iPhone’s start page to share your apps? It’s now launched a new tool to help discover trending apps.

The tool already let you see which apps were most popular on people’s phones, but now it shows which new ones have been recently growing in popularity. The company points out the rise of the Meerkat livestreaming app, for instance, as well as the new Outlook app‘s popularity.

The hub shows whether apps are free or paid, as well as their category and the number of homescreens they show up on. #Homescreen is still a relatively new tool – some of the “trending” apps only have 3 installs – but it will be interesting to see what cool apps the platform surfaces as it grows.
