iPad App Store adds new search tools
Browsing apps in the App Store just got a little bit easier.
Finding App Store apps that aren't featured prominently on the front page generally tends to revert into the proverbial needle-hunt in the haystack. Good news: new search tabs have magically appeared as of this morning, making app-browsing just a little easier.
The new pull-down search categories, as seen above, cover price, rating, platform, release window, and the like. They appear when using the search function, and can help narrow down a wide field of apps (such as, say, "dog apps"). It's a solid first step, but it doesn't help address flaws that are already in the App Store: namely, the ratings system, which is prone to spamming and misrepresentation from users one-starring apps in acts of often inappropriate rage.
How's the App Store search system working for you?
