    Has this just been switched on? Or is it most likely I've never been somewhere with location'ed apps?
    I've tried the tab a few times since first putting beta 1 on my iPhone and haven't seen anything there (can't remember what the message was it said, probably nothing available for my location or something like that).
    I've just tried it now (near an airport, where I'm sure I've tried it several times already) and it's listing quite a few airport/airline related apps (and oddly, gumtree and a calorie counter!).
    Quite nifty!

    If it's been working all along and I've just noticed... what kind of locations have people been seeing it offering up apps? Have they been related (as far as you're aware) to where you were? Any completely rogue ones?

    Nice! Has it been working well?

    This is the only time I've ever seen it work! I'll keep checking though from now on.
    I'd love for my app to show up in it's most relevant places, there's not many other apps that would show.

    It's based on apps that other iOS 7 users have downloaded/viewed in your location. It's been on since Beta 1, you just hadn't been around others with iOS 7.

    Ah, yeah that makes sense! I guess my app won't show up then until iOS 7 is released. If there were any developers who had the need for the app, I wouldn't have needed to make it in the first place cos somebody else would've lol so no developer will be buying it new I'm sure. Ah well!

    Thanks :)
