    AppStore - back to the beginning

    There are over 1,340 utilities in the AppStore. If I'm browsing the apps and see one I like, I install it. But I can't continue to browse from where I left off instead I'm taken back to the beginning. That's a lot of clicks to get back to where I was. Is there a way to continue from where I was or to jump to a specific page?

    Thanks,

    Dov

    Usability is the biggest problem with the app store.

    Agreed, it desperately needs an overhaul now as it's become too unwieldy.
    If you know in advance what you want it's fine, but it's become a victim of it's own success and browsing is nearly impossible.
    Glad fixing it is not my job....

    Not as dumb as I thought I was

    Well at least I know I'm not crazy or too dumb to use the iPad. I thought I was missing something. Maybe when the iPad gets multitasking (like the iPhone with OS 4) the app store won't have to close down to install an app and we can go right back to where we were. Just a thought

    Glad you've asked this, I wondered whether it was just me!
    iPhone 32GB 3GS & iPad 32GB 3G - a matching pair!

    When you find one you want to download just write the name down and keep going. Once you are finished browsing just type in the ones you wrote down and begin downloading.

    While this is a very simple and elegant solution to the problem, I think what the OP is saying is that since the iPad is a "consumption device" (as opposed to a "real" computer) with a starting price of $500, Apple could be doing a much better job at improving the browsing and purchasing experience in the App Store.

    Glad I found this thread! I like to scroll through the new apps, but hate that even if I just look at one, then go back it takes me all the way to the beginning of the list. I guess there really isn't a good solution to this yet.

    Just use the app called appshopper, you can search and save searches and when you find one you want to purchase you click and it takes you to the appstore so you can buy, go right back to appshopper and pick up where you left off.

    There are times, when I am really searching out apps, where I do so in iTunes, at which point I make extensive use of the Wish List.

    Doesn't solve the whole issue, just my way around it.
