    This was updated a little while ago and I'm having trouble getting use to it but I think I'll like it!

    Looks fine on the iPad. It's REALLY bad on the iPhone:

    There's no way to easily scroll through a bunch of results. You can only see one at a time now. Terrible.

    It makes the process of finding new apps painfully slow!

    Odd decision on Apple's part. I only see this being useful on the iPad.

    maybe its just of the apps you own? i honestly don't know but i kinda like the layout on both iPhone and iPad even though i know it narrows the view field in the iphone version. the solution to this proble i think would be to have the ability to rotate to portrait and boom cover flow with names below each icon and when you tap it it flips over for details

    The current style was fine.. just let us filter through more details. But this is a pain, i can't believe the UI/UX lead who approved of this..

    On iPad it makes sense not too sure about it on the iPhone unless they testing it on the new iPhone screen.

    it's alright, i rarely search for an App unless a friend tells me one specifically, so I assume the app i search will be the first one and it is a different UI.

    One we're still in beta, and they are just running a trial of it.

    However; Knowing Apple it will probably stick, they've already done all their usability studies internal already.

    Whenever I have ever searched for an app, its always been the first 1-3 results, I cant think of a time when Ive scrolled and scrolled. Its a clean fresh layout, that wont be troublesome except in very rare circumstances.

    It's AWFUL. :eek:

    I was already thinking about sticking with iOS 5 but this might seal it.

    It's a waste of space on the iPad screen, looks bad on iPhone...personally I prefer the old style better

    Same for me! Does this mean they may let us start buying iPad apps, from the iPhone...

    ALSO, not all of the Universal apps show the + sign. I did a test with Foursquare, it doesn't show it, and the Podcast and Remote app in your screenshot don't show the + Universal sign.

    Odd!

    edit: Neither does the Facebook app when I search 'facebook', but further down the list, Bejeweled Blitz shows the [+] universal mark.

    It started showing me the new card layout today. I do like the screenshot idea but it's so inefficient.

    that is a terrible way to search. its displaying the same amount of information as before, only with one app per entire screen. That is incredibly inefficient anda complete waste of space. Not to mention its ugly.

    People just dont like change. Dont worry you will get used to the new look.


    But I kinda have to agree....that look on the iPhone is ugly

    from my point of view (app developer), the changes is bad.
    Bad for discovery I mean, it would only benefit the highest rank app since people won't bother scrolling so many pages to see the apps.

    New search results on the iPhone is just terrible. Cook needs to get his head out of his ass.

    It wouldn't be so bad if it worked properly.

    When I swipe sideways, more often than not it gets 'stuck' at say 19 out of 200. I can't go back to anything < 19, and if I swipe enough times it starts showing negative numbers..

    The search is horrible.

    The other bugs, hopefully they'll be ironed out prior to release.
