    I was looking at a few games in the app store. I noticed there's no longer any way to select the specific subcategories, or genres, of games. For example, I love strategy games. However, there is no longer any way to view *just* the strategy games. I would now have to click on every game, one by one, to discover it's genre.

    What's up? This makes it impossible to browse games in the app store in iTunes! There's no way I'm sifting through 600 pages of games.

    Totally stupid and people are not happy.

    And that includes developers.

    It's still available in the "Browse" interface, but the list is not very usable - very limited options in sorting, for instance.

    Very correct! I expect we see categories back in the games section sometime next week.

    Game categories are back. They are in the bottom right.

    Either way the way they'd implemented drop downs and horizontal scroll is lame. 1990 called and they'd like their design ideas back.

    Can't seem to find them on the Australian app store.

    I can't see them in the UK store either.

    However, they are still there in the App store on the iPhone itself, so I would presume at some point they may return to iTunes 9
