    Noticed for the past few days on the iPhone _itself_ (not iTunes) when i
    press the "App Store" icon, Categories does not work as it should.

    Tapping "Categories" - all i see, for all the rows, is the "Skype" icon and
    beside it says "App Store", if i press this, then it looks like same as tapping
    the "Featured" button
    The bottom buttons, "Featured","Top 25", "Search", "Updates", all work
    normally as supposed too.
    i saw this with iTunes 8 and firmware 3.0 ....upgrading both didn't change
    This shows up on my (normal) Canadian account _only_ (i don't know
    about other countries) , if i sign in under my US account, the "Categories"
    button works as it should

    Yesterday, i went into an apple store and asked a "genius" if he heard of this,
    he said, "no" with a surprised look ...he then grabbed another iPhone and tried
    it ...same problem ...he said, "yep, that's an apple problem, thanks for letting
    me know" ......

    I too have this problem on my iPhone. However, if you go to Settings -> Store, and sign out there and sign in again. App Store should work as it should. At least it fixes the mess up Categories for me.
