    I use the Mac App Store every once and a while and sometimes find something worthwhile. However, most of my time is spent wading through a sea of apps that are poorly designed or have little functionality.

    Finding exactly what I want is also difficult. There are not many subcategories to sift through; apps just seem bunched together in large, general categories.

    Am I the only one that feels like this? I feel the same way about the iBookstore and to a lesser extent, the iOS App Store.

    One man's trash is another's treasure. I think the App Store could use some Advanced Search options, but oh well.

    Agreed. I don't think I've purchased a single app from the app store that I didn't previously know of. The single exception is a free Sketchbook Express app.

    The app store sucks to navigate. But if you know what you're looking for, it's not bad. e.g., the search box works.

    That is always true. Some Advanced Search options would lead to better sales I'm sure, too.
