Searching the iTunes store for new apps can be awkward and slow. Unless you know exactly what you want it can take a while to find what you need.

uquery.com, launched today, wants to be Google for iPhone Apps and they are doing a pretty good job at it. Search queries are blazingly fast and the filtering options in the left sidebar are very convenient for quickly narrowing down a search.

One drawback is that uquery.com doesn’t seem to have all the information that the iTunes App store does. You won’t find any user comments or stars in these results.

Look past that and you have a very good alternative for Apple’s own solutions for finding that one perfect app out of the 72,075 apps available right now. Give it a try:
