It’s always fun to look back in time to the world in which it was even only a few short years ago. (Besides, a few short years ago is like a decade or two in tech years). So what was the mobile app scene like? Handango and PocketGear wear “the” mobile app stores. The big draw was that their respective app libraries were massive, in part because of the countless mobile platforms all supported under one roof. That multi-platform, app goodness has just received a fresh kick in the rear as PocketGear has announced that they have purchased Handango outright.

In case you were counting, this new uber store is now 140,000 (and growing) apps strong. As always, platforms all across the board such as Symbian, WindMo, Android, BlackBerry, and more will find something to take away from this new store. Being that I love options myself, it’s definitely worth at least one look to see if there’s anything unique. I’ll say that I generally avoided stors such as Handango and the likes back in the day simply because the storefronts themselves just weren’t ever that great, nor were the apps. ‘Tis a new time however.

For those of you feeling adventurous, would you feeling inclined to give this new multi-platform uberstore a shot? Or do you still find yourself preferring the much more tightly integrated individual app stores? Drop it below.
