    Does anyone like the new App Store in IOS 6?

    I think Apple has a way to go with this, not unusual as Maps is the same.

    App Store is slow, the purchase section has a neat popup, but omitts all the crucial details and or images of a product purchased.

    When installing and swiping up/down, is un-resonsive if there is allot on screen.

    Hope Apple fixes this. I prefer the old app store

    Also, i know see a "new" badge applied when downloading previously purchased apps.

    I like the fact fact that it doesn't exit and take you to the desktop

    I like most of the changes, especially updating without entering my password. However, I find it very annoying that it seems like they removed all the links to a developer's website. Unless I'm familer with the developer, I like to visit a developer's website before I buy an app, or if I want more info about the app.

    Same here, I can't find the developer links too. Otherwise, main screen & new search display is awesome! :D

    This was my only grip with the store. Glad to see they finally took care of this. No complaints for me with the store.

    Mine is that the store is too slow.

    It's appallingly slow on my new iPad but rather fast on my iPhone 5. I love being able to install apps without exiting the store. Also I find that links to the App Store from Safari now work every time, they used to never work. On my iPad the purchased tab never loads anything.

    Overall I think the redesign is terrible but there are a few positive improvements.

    To tell you the truth I have not noticed. Just the overall store or when you are doing a specific function like a search?

    I like it so far. The best thing is the badge notifications actually show up without me having to "check for updates" first as in the past. I just randomly look at my phone and there will be an update waiting for me.

    As for the look and feel of it, I like it and think it works fine on my 4S.

    It's simpler overall, which I more-or-less like. The scrolling performance is lousy though -- however they're handling downloading the icons and app metadata seems to be really laggy.

    I can't download an app without setting up a Q&A with 3 (stupid) questions?
    And there's no "Back" button?

    What questions are those? Wen I download an app it's just putting inmy password and occasionally confirming I'm over 18, just like before.

    After hitting "Install" to purchase/download an app, a warning dialog appeared saying something about improving security of my Apple ID - along with that came a suggestion to answer 3 questions. Think: "What was the name of your first pet?", "Where did your parents meet?"...
    Now I understand and appreciate the security concern, but I had no choice but to run through this setup prior to continue to use the Appstore. So I made a screenshot of the questionaire, just in case sometime in the future I need to answer them on an Appstore login - you never know.

    The absence of a "Back" button is way more serious for me, makes browsing the store almost impossible IMHO.

    For me it's very slow when on the top charts page. The images for the icons take forever to load.

    The basic phone functionality is apparently still in its infancy too. The App approvers should deny any game that constantly bugs you to invite or challenge people via Facebook.

    Yes, it's much slower than the old store in that aspect.

    Me too. I like the new arrangement of the search result most, which makes it easier to look for suitable app.

    I also love that I no l longer exit every time, also glad they finally stop asking for passwords on updates, now wish they'd stop asking for stuff over 17.

    No diff, really. I could never really find anything useful pre-IOS6, and still can't find anything I want now. Any apps I do download, are often through word of mouth or googled online. :rolleyes:
