Since opening the digital App Store in July 2008, Apple had added an estimated 60,000 apps to its virtual shelves and recently recorded its 10- billionth app download. That is 19 million iPad , iPhone, iPod and iTouch apps a day.
Considering the overwhelming congestion in the App Store you’d figure the brains in Cupertino would have added a search function before now. Well, you’d have figured wrong but at least beginning this week new search tabs are available to guide users’ efforts in finding that obscure iPad app that might help remember to take out garbage Tuesday or do this year’s taxes.
In fact, four search filters have been added on the App Store, allowing users to sort searches by category, release date, customer rating, price and device with an option to reset all the filters.
The company also added a filter rest option and search critereas that are based on release date at interviews of 7, 14 or 31 days.
Don’t bother searching for an update, the filters appear to have been added directly to the iPad’s App Store. Next time you connect the device the search option will be available.
