    It shows what's hot, what's making the most money, what staff is I missing something, how do you browse through all the iPad game apps for instance?

    It would be nice to have a page that shows what was just added in the last xx days and one that shows what was updated in the last xx days. I hate browsing through all the pages just to see if there are any new apps out.

    The best way currently is to either type in iPad in search which will bring up all of the iPad apps and games, or type in iPad games which brings up mostly iPad games.

    I hope this gets fixed too because it is very annoying. I also wish app miner or pandora's box apps had a iPad category now.

    The best way is to go here...

    On the top, click on iPad, All, and Free. Easiest way to see all the free apps.

    Try it.

    Lists 18 games for free on iPad. There's over 800 games, surely more than 18 are free lol. At least iTunes lists the top 50.

    I've been choosing "Top Charts" and then just choosing different categories at the top... but, like iTunes will only show the top 50 free.

    I search for all of my Apps on my iMac then just sync. Seems easier to find the free ones for some reason than on the iPad itself. At least for me.

    You might want to change the Popular filter to All (just right of the category dropdown).

    Or, you could just go to the main app store page which opens up selected to iPhone. Click on the iPad selector button, then after that, as you go through each category in the drop down menu, all the selections are for iPad. You can then look at the entire list as usual, look at the top paid, or top free.

    It would be nice if there was a page where it would be easy to see all the new apps, sorted by date.

    I actually downloaded about 50 free iBooks last night also... if you search for "free" in the iBook Library hundreds if not thousands of free books appear for you to download. Mostly classics- Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island, Time Machine, Art of War, Pygmalion, that sort of thing...

    The first book I downloaded was The Divine Comedy because I've always wanted to read it and I knew it would be free. There are some really good free books on ibooks.
