Thanks to all our supporters the Big Day is here. Briteli is out of beta today (18th Nov 2015), the app is stable and we have some awesome curated apps available.
After 6 months in the making, 100’s of apps evaluated, 4 incremental releases, 8 curated collections, 2 people. Welcome to the Briteli official release.
By the way it’s pronounced as ‘brightly’. For those who are not familiar with Briteli, it is a different way to find useful apps on Google Play through collections.
Google play Rating: 4.8
Install from Google Play
The human mind is way more powerful and complex than any algorithm, it really cannot be replaced by algorithms for making judgements about usefulness of an app, at-least not yet.
We are a tiny team of curators gathering interesting content into useful collections. One of the big changes between beta and now is the addition of Curated Web sections, you’ll see it in action in a few collections like ‘photographers toolkit‘
You can also try the service without installing the app, just head over to brite.li and keep the feedback coming we’re listening.

How do you make sense of the hundreds of thousands of apps that are published every year.
What is Briteli?
With millions of apps it’s impossible to find apps that are not on the top charts, but there are hundreds of useful apps that serve small niches. Briteli curates the best and most useful apps into collections. The next time you need apps for astronomy, cookery or any interest area, let Briteli help you discover the most useful ones.
How many collections does Brite.li have?
We plan to have less than 25 collections at any point in time based on current interest and trends. For example we may add a seasonal collection like ‘Football Fever’ during a soccer world cup.
Where is search?
Search is not really the idea behind Briteli, you should make use of the most advanced search technology provided on Play Store. But if you have to use search, try popular tags in the ‘discover’ section of Briteli
Why Curate Apps?
How do you make sense of the hundreds of thousands of apps that are published every year. You could miss out on a useful app or worse never get to hear of it. Social signals and automation are amplifying noise as well. The human mind that judges good content cannot be replaced by an algorithm, atleast not yet. Curators are passionate about an interest area and spend a lot of time in judging good content so people get to see a slice of the best apps at-least for an interest area like photography
Why would people use Brite.li?
App stores are dominated by the usual chart toppers based on number of downloads, ratings and community suggestions. After people get tired of the chart toppers there are still thousands of good apps which they will never get to see because people don’t know they exist and would never search for it. Briteli helps you find useful apps and content in a more focused manner after people get tired of the app stores.
