I don't have it yet. I guess it might take a while to show up.

Lame. I would prefer more choice.

Or I would prefer a less crappy iPad app store. Buying and browsing apps on my iPhone is a MUCH better experience by a long shot.

Yep, I just noticed this. Pretty cool.

Problem: if you follow the link to an app, it returns you to the first page of your recommended list afterwards - even if you were several pages in.

Doesn't seem to respond very quickly or clearly to 'not interested' tagging either.

Still, early days - good to see it up!

I remember activating genius and kept wondering where the heck it was, then I saw it this morning. About time.

/sigh

More apps to buy.

What's the iPad upgrades section for?

What's the iPad upgrades section for?

Notifies you when there are iPad specific versions of your iPhone apps available.

Dunno where it gets the info about which apps to search for (your pad or your account?) nor how it determines the existence of iPad versions (a search or a Dev flag?).
