    Hi!

    I'm getting my first iPad on Friday and have been looking in iTunes at the App section. Tons of apps!

    Why aren't the apps listed with star ratings? I have to go into each app in order to see the ratings.

    Is there another way to view the apps listings that shows the ratings?

    Thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, there is no way to sort apps in the iTunes Store by rating. All you can do is look at the "Top" lists.

    If its any comfort, when you DO get your iPad (!), you can do a search in the App Store on the iPad and within that search you can narrow it down to star ratings.

    Yeah, not much help now, but I don't think Apple really intended for iTunes to be the shopping point for iPad apps...

    Thank you Marilyn!

    It is a comfort. I'll wait.....

    Would be a nice upgrade for iTunes, though.

    Heh. Between you, me and the fence post ... iTunes could stand a few "nice" upgrades. :D
