    Open iTunes preferences, select General and check the checkbox for Applications in the Show selection.

    This will enable the blue Applications button on the sidebar underneath Library.

    Next, click on Applications and you will see a blank screen. However, on the bottom right hand corner there are two buttons. "Check for Updates" and "Get More Applications".

    Click on Get More Applications and you can browse the App Store.

    Howcome I can only see a few pages of apps, when there's supposed to be thousands?

    I get about three pages of 100 apps - best selling, free, paid etc

    Can't see any buttons anywhere to view categories, 'all apps' etc

    I'm viewing in my mac, using a voucher to buy. Should this affect anything?

    Indeed you are right. My bad. OP still silly though.

    I'll try to help... don't see the "See All" links? The App Store toolbar link also cascades into categories when you click the down arrow.

    No, I still don' have any of those options going in directly through iTunes, just their selections, but I can access everything when I go in through my iPod, so there's really not much of a problem anymore, although sometimes it would be easier Reading up on an app when I'm at home on my big screen...

    Not really, when you consider that the app store wasn't "out" on Jul 10
