    More than three years ago, Apple debuted a dedicated Apple Store app for the iPhone and now the Cupertino company is releasing its very first Apple Store app for the iPad. The Apple Store iPad app is U.S.-only for the moment and comes high-quality images and context-aware panels that bring an exceptional user experience.

    Matthew Panzarino with TechCrunch has a detailed review of the app, here’s what he thinks of it:

    Among the most important features of the new Apple Store app for iPad are the gesture-based user interface and the listing of trending products. The individual product detail pages utilize a split pane view that is similar to the one found in the iPad-based smart displays in Apple's retail stores.

    Of course, Apple customers can use the app to purchase and customize products, such as engraving for iPads and iPods or choose a in-store Personal Pickup purchase. When compared to the similar iPhone app, though, Apple's iPad app lacks the EasyPay and location-aware Genius Bar check-ins functions.

      I'm not so sure. With the phone app, you give it your username password and you can check the status of your order inside the app. With this "ipad" app, you give it the same into and it pops you into safari and then asks for the exact same info again. Argh!

      While the new iPad version of the Apple Store app is not yet available in Canada, the iPhone version of the app, which previously worked perfectly on the iPad has been rendered unusable by a pop up which says to download the, as yet, nonexistent Canadian version if the iPad Apple Store app. This pop up cannot be dismissed and it has rendered the app completely unusable for iPads in Canada.

      This is what you see if you open the iPhone version of the Apple Store app on an iPad.

      Well, I tried to open the iPhone version of the apple store app, which I have been using for a long time on my iPads, and now it won't work. It says to open the iPad version of the app. I'm not happy.

      But only if you have upgraded to iOS 7 unfortunately.

      Yes, it looks all iOS 7-ish.
