    Browsing the iTunes App store

    It used to be that you could go to the iTunes app store, select a category (games, productivity, etc.) and look at all of the apps in that category. My more recent experience has been that you can browse the top X number of apps in a category but not all of them. Some of the best apps I found for my iPod Touch, such as the BII financial calculator, I ran across by browsing a whole category. Is there still a way to do the type of browsing I was originally doing or are there simply too many apps in the categories to allow that anymore?

    You can still do it on iTunes on a computer, but I also haven't found it on the app store on iPad.

    Cherhall, I must be doing something wrong. When I go to the iTunes store using my computer I can get, for example, the Top 100 paid APPs but not all of the APPs in a category. Now if I am looking for something specific like a PDF reader APP, the iTunes search feature brings up a lot of choices (presumably everything).

    Browsing the iTunes App store

    Run iTunes, click the little arrow next to the app store link, choose the category. In the center of the page is a complete list. Off to the sides are the TOP lists.

    Don't forget to tick the "More choices" next to a list.

    Cherhall, you are absolutely right! I had just been clicking on the APP Store link and not looking at the drop down box. Thank you very much.

    I also have found you can do it on the iPad too. Open app store, then click on categories. Then at the top of the page choose release date and you'll get the entire list. The only thing I've not seen are the subcategories you find under games, that you can find on the computer version.

    I received notice today that the iPad I ordered has been shipped. When I get it, I will definitely use it to check out the iStore. Thanks again for the advice.

    And a good thing to do while you are waiting is to be sure you have the latest itunes installed on your computer. That way when you get your iPad (yea!) you are good to go....
