Just like Facebook, Twitter has strived on the strength of its third-party development, and now a Twitter user has created an unofficial app store to bring it all together in one mini marketplace.


Since Twitter’s launch, developers have created everything from mobile apps and desktop clients to media sharing services like Twitpic. The only problem is unlike Facebook, there had previously been no centralised database where people could go to for reviews, screenshots and more details.


Luckily, faithful Twitter user Laura Fitton (@pistachio) has created Oneforty, which offers up over 1,300 tools and services  with all of the above, as well as links to more in-depth features and live Twitter comments on the service to see what people are saying about it in real time.


To sign up for Oneforty, you’ll need to request an invitation and once you have that, you’ll sign in using your Twitter details.


The program will pull all of your profile deets into it, and will even recognise apps you’ve previously used in connection with your profile. You’re then ready to start downloading and rating your favourites.
