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, hereâ€™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.
