    When I go to the app store and search for apps under categories it only shows the first page of app and I can't go to the second page or any other page. The arrow to go to next page is just gray like it is inscribe, what is wrong???

    I have another problem. I can't download AppStore with age limit 12+. Pretty annoying. I also have a problem with Tap Tap Radiation. The download button have turned to installed. The app is not installed on my iPad. Please help me.

    Ok. I found the problem. The restrictions is on, but the restrictions page is coded. I haven't set any code on it. Please help me!

    I guess you've probably solved this problem now, but - just in case....

    Some categories only have a single page of apps, so the 'next page' button is always gray.

    You need to wait for the app icons to download before the button becomes active.

    Other than that, I can't see what the problem would be.

    Hope you manage to fix it...

    Yeah, I have the same problem. It only seems to be when I'm searching through using the categories option.

    The little arrow never goes grey, even after 20mins waiting.

    The UK appstore is working fine.

    If a reboot doesn't fix the problem, there isn't much one can do, except to wait for Apple to fix it.

    I've rebooted (held home and power button until the apple logo comes up) twice now, and it still isn't working. Should I try by turning the iPad off and then back on? Would that make any difference?

    Can't View Categories in Apps Store

    I'm having the same problem but just noticed it as of March 5th, in the AM. I no longer can just view the different categories. It takes me right to the Search apps page. That would be ok but you can only select one filter to search. And then if you want to just view them all, it only shows the first page like others have reported. I don't think its my iPad but rather Apple.

    As of sometime Sunday evening, it appears Apple has fixed the problem. I can now go to the Categories, ie "games" and it comes up to the featured section. Choose "release date" and the decending list of games appears, most recent on top. Thank you Apple. I was starting to have withdrawal symptoms from being not being able to view all the apps!

    There are more details about the problem and fix in the Apple Support Discussion Forum.

    Like I said in my previous post, Apple did fix this problem. Make sure your OS is upgraded. Maybe that's why you are still experiencing it.

    Also, once I didn't realize that if there is no "next" page, the arrow will be a lighter shade of gray. Like a dummy, I kept pushing on it and thought something was wrong! :eek:

    Hi!
    I'm afraid this problem has not yet been solved. It happens when there is any installed application on page 1. If page 1 does not include an installed application, arrow for next page is active; otherwise, next page arrow grays out.

    I agree. No installs on the first page and all is good. If you have something installed on first page of results then next arrow is greyed out.

    To verify your THEORY..

    YES! there is an INSTALLED app on page 1, thus not letting me to go to page 2.

    About upgrading OS.. I dont think that is it.. From other problem posts on other FORUMS, everyone is all across the board with iOS versions.

    ANNOYING WORK AROUND:

    Completely sign out of your account in the App Store, so it can not recognize what is INSTALLED or not.

    All the pages were then available to me.

    I don't know how or when, but it seems to be solved without an iOS update. It wasn't working with 4.3.2, now it is. Anyhow, thanks.
