    I'm browsing through the app store, I'm looking at #500 out of a list of thousands, sorted by popularity. I take a look at the description for an app, and when I return to the search I'm back at #1 on the list and I have to start scrolling back to #500 again, one screen at a time. Is there a way not to lose my place?
    Thanks,
    g2s

    Don't worry it's not just you. This is driving everyone *crazy*. It's a known 'feature' and it seems intermittent - sometimes you get the problem, other times you don't. No real cures known, I'm afraid; there have been one or two 'work arounds' but I guess it's something we'll have to wait for Apple to fix. Until then we just tear our hair out...:(

    I'm lazy, but I do use my notes app to write things in as well, because my memory is shot on occasion! Stress, I'm sure!

    Nope, I agree with Hayles, I always take a pic and move on then do a mass download. Have you tried an app called appshopper you can set many features and it never reverts to #1.

    App Hits works well and has a good description off the app while you are on the list. (But I still use Appshopper , too.
