'Apple Store' App Updated for iPhone 5
Apple today updated its Apple Store app for iOS [App Store], adding support for the larger screen of the iPhone 5.
Compatibility with the larger 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5 also means that the app will be optimized for the fifth-generation iPod touch when it becomes available. Apple is preparing to ship the first orders of the device, with the actual availability date being rumored for October 9.

I had my credit card expired two weeks back and my AppleID through which I buy apps was associated with this card. Given I was lazy and didn't care about the updates as I am extremely busy these ays — I didn't update my bank info.
After 2 weeks, I had 41 updates for my iPhone 4S and 34 out of them — 'included support for iPhone 5'.
I am just going to say that Apple did delay this although they should've not. But you must understand that this is not a very important app; pretty important for their business but people are only recently receiving their iPhone 5 devices. Had it been the case that the app didn't support some kind of device before the iPhone 5 launch, this would have been atrocious.
Just my 2 cents.

No use of Passbook? Low-hanging fruit there.

For the iPad the resolution is high enough where you can use the regular apple site. And yes I can't believe it took them this long to optimize it for the 5. Smh the company should lead by example.

WHy can't I order Apple Gift Cards?
My biggest complaint is not be ing able to order Apple Gift Store Gift crads from the app. I can on the website...just not in the app. What gives? MAYBE I would like to gift an iPhone.

I use this app all the time, but I don't really care that it took Apple a while to get it updated. Which would you rather see? Should Apple have delayed the release of the iPhone 5 for this app? Or should they have released the iPhone 5 last quarter so they can recognize revenue from sales of 5 million phones before the end of last quarter. Geez, tough business decision. LOL
