    I'm a new user and am having a problem. When I search for an app and get through several pages and then look at an app when I leave the app it takes me back to page one rather than the page I was on and have to start over--how do I correct this--thanks

    I would suggest LOTS of alcohol! :D

    But seriously though, that's how the App Store behaves. Annoying, ain't it?

    I'd recomment AppShopper, a free app. With it, you can browse AND come back to the search after you've researched/read about another app.

    There are those who dream that Apple will figure a better way to run the App Store...

    Good luck.

    When I'm doing research I use iTunes. While it doesn't always behave predictably, it does so more often than the iPad app. I usually go back and purchase the app directly on the iPad when I'm finished. Quicker that way.

    AppAdvice is another good site/app to check things out. They have some lists and guides that, while not definitive, make good starting points for comparing apps.

    I've heard about AppShopper before. I really should check it out.

    I used to have this problem too. Sometimes the button at the top left side of the screen would say 'back', when it would take me back to the first page and sometimes it would say 'App Store', when it would take me back to the page I'd just left. Sometimes, too, the 'App Store' button would appear for a second and then change to 'Back'. I'm sure someone out there knows how to fix this!
