    Hi guys,
    I consider myself to be the kind of person that can usually figure out a computer problem, even if I have to use Google but this one has got me stumped.
    I want to use my computer to search through every single FREE App for the iPad/iPad 2 so that I can download it ready for the next sync, but no matter where I go I can't narrow the search down to the Free Apps, just ALL Business, ALL Games, etc.
    Any ideas?

    Cheers m'dears,
    Steve

    OP wants to filter for free apps only, so he can shop among them.

    OP, you might want to check out the AppShopper app, to help overcome some of iTunes' / the app store's lame functionality.

    In iTunes App Store, if you select a category from the dropdown box in the upper right corner of the screen and select any category you can then select Paid or Free apps button when that categpry page appears.

    No idea how you'd do it for all the categories all at once.

    Appshopper shows 7900+ free popular apps. Are you sure you want all of them?

    sjleworthy ... Thanks for trying but "Search through" is NOT the same thing as "Download" in proper English as spoken wherever folk speak proper English.

    kaykaykay and Bimjo .... Aaaaah, so to get to iPad Apps, I need to run iTunes? Why did nobody say??
    Ta very much.

    Nobody said because it's fairly obvious, IMO.

    Sent from my iPad using iPF

    I find this hilarious- he did warn us with the title! Everyone needs to start somewhere.

    No. Sorry, guys but I'm still not seeing any lists or icans of Apps, free or paid for.
    When I open iTunes, I see a big list of my stuff in various categories like, music, films, TV, books, Apps etc. That fills the left quarter of the screen. Then the top half of the rest of the screen is an advert for an iTunes Festival (which keeps changing)
    Under that are icons for Apps in categories such as What's Hot, Space Apps, staff favourites etc but no way that I can see to filter it to only see the free ones.

    I'm off out now for a few hours.
    Take care all.
    Steve

    You can also do a search for "free". When the results show up, there's a filter across the top where you can change the Price option to show only free.
