App Store now available in desktop iTunes--with some trickery

iTunes App Store iPhone Atlas

Although Apple has not yet updated the iTunes Store front page to link directly to the desktop version of the iPhone App Store, it can still be accessed with a little trickery. To access the desktop App Store, follow these steps:

  • Download and install iTunes 7.7, if you haven't already
  • Click on the iTunes Store in the left-hand panel
  • Search for current iPhone application, such as Super Monkey Ball
  • Click small gray arrow next to Super Monkey Ball in the search results to go to the app's download page
  • In the top navigation bar in iTunes, click "App Store"

The main App Store page will appear, and you can buy and download applications then sync them to your iPhone/iPod Touch.
