    When I do an app search from any category and open an app's info. Instead of returning to the series of apps that I just left it returns back to the very first app series that I started with. And I then have to swipe through all of the previous app windows just to get back to where I left off. Is there a way around this? It makes app searching very cumbersome and time consuming.

    As the previous poster has commented - it is indeed a very annoying App Store 'feature' that Apple need to fix...how anyone ever gets to the end of a long list of apps is beyond my comprehension, you'd think the App Developers would have been ceaselessly complaining about this.

    Sounds like I'm stuck with "search & re-search". Come on Apple, I bought your product for the quality!
    Anyhow, thanx for the replies. It's good to share the frustration.

    Check out the "app shopper" app. I do most of my searching there, then jump to the app store when I'm ready to buy, or want to see some reviews.
