    Browsing the AppStore on the iPad is such a pain. And I HATE how the AppStore closes when you download an app making you start all over.

    Yep. Mono-tasking is a bitch. ;)

    Yes, I agree the close down of it sucks upon download. I also think it is not organized very well. I also don't like how you can't browse through free apps on different types of apps either, just the top 50.

    It is a very annoying bug when it crashes when starting a download.

    Doesn't seem to slow down trolling any. :rolleyes:

    Multitrolling is MacRumors' killer feature.

    I wouldn't really call it trolling; the app store is a mess. Was before the iPad and it's twice as bad now with the iPad. Having a separate iPad app store, clear designations for what is an iPad app and what is an iPhone/iPod Touch app, and no universal apps would have helped.

    It would be great to easily be able to see what was newly added, in all categories.

    Would also be nice to be able to see your Wish List.

    Right now it, it's a pain to find new good apps. It just shows the most popular and featured apps.

    I'm using appshopper.com and that's better, but still not ideal.

    Being able to sort by User Rating would be nice.


    I bought it and feel it was a waste of $3. It's just a front end to a feed of articles, most of which aren't even that well written.
    The other features they claim it has don't even exist on the iPad version. Maybe I should ask for a refund. Oh it also crashed a lot.
