    This could possibly be the dumbest question ever, but I looked everywhere that I could think of in the App store. :confused:

    If I go into iTunes 9 and the App Store tab (Canadian store) I see a few categories down the left side (New and Noteworthy, What's Hot, and Staff Favorites). On the right side there are three Top categories (Paid Apps, Free Apps, and Top Grossing). But I don't see any way to see all the apps. If I click on any of the categories I see a list of the top 100, or 40 or 50 in the other categories, but no way to get to all the apps.

    What am I missing? (If I search for "app" and then filter to just Apps I get most or all of them, without categories, but that can't be what Apple intended). :confused:

    Please help - Greg

    If you go into any of the categories, all of the apps are in the middle, and you can sort them by release date, name, or popularity. You just keep paging through them.

    You can't just get a list of all 70,000+ in a row.

    Is that what you meant?

    The only categories I see are the six I mentioned above and they only have one or two pages of apps listed (100 apps max).

    I don't see a normal category list like there was when I first visited the app store a few months ago.

    Thanks - Greg

    Are you clicking on the down arrow?




    Edit: thanks, Daremo! That's what I get for posting half asleep. :eek:

    You sure you want your email address posted like that in the image?

    D'oh! I clicked on every link (and non-link) on the Apps page but never noticed there was a drop down menu in the App Store "tab".

    Thanks a lot - Greg

    You can also click the Browse button at the bottom of the screen to browse by categories
