Apple decided way less visibility and way more complication would be better for everyone so it was done!

The OP has very valid point, as great as the iPhone is the App Store needs a complete overhaul. It's a tedious process for me after about 40-50 swipes I'm done. I'm sure there is alot of apps in there that might interest me but my time is too valuable to continue swiping forever. I basically look at the top 50 in categories but sometimes get tired of seeing the same ones, what about app #565? That might be the one I want.

I would probably buy more apps if scrolling through them was easier. I sometimes wonder if there really are apps at # 985 or 1,102, I'll never know because I can't get to them.

And today I noticed that there are really good apps that far down. But I haven't actually bought many new apps since iOS6.

i dont know...


by the time i reached page 9 i was convinced i had seen all the angry birds apps. angry piggy in page 9 certainly didnt qualify as a valid result given the search criteria.


not sure which angry birds app you were expecting to find in page 50.


if you wanted games similar to angry birds you should check apps such AppZapp, Appsfire or discovr apps which will give you recommendations.

I'm curious now as to what that last of the 1,000+ apps actually is.

I'm going to see how far I can a really go before I say, "I've had it." Leave a comment open for me so I don't have to double post!

Just another reason why I'm still on iOS 5

Seriously they need to stop screwing around and make things practical again.

Whew whew whew

I could only get to #415 before I just said, "F it."

But on the way down I did see some apps that I had to take a second look. None of them were download worthy I don't think. The card view is just uninspired.

Also, there are some actually really crappy apps in this store.

I search for apps using Appsfire or Appzap Pro more than I use the App Store.

Plus, if I don't like the current price, I can have it notify me when it changes.
