Searching App Store

I'm a newbie to Apple, never had an ipod or anything...

How do you view the App Store by category? ie, I'd like to see the apps by categories like Magazines, Kids apps, etc. Other than the "New & Noteworthy", "What's Hot", etc. And where are the magazines? I found some by typing "magazine" in the search box but surely there is a category to browse for magazines I hope?

Thanks!

That tab on the itunes store that says apps, hover over it until you see the arrow and click that, then choose which category you want.

on the device app store click categories....lol

Featured seems to give a better list view.

Overall I think they really need to rework the app store layout, its really bad and really only able to show a handful of apps at a time...I want to be able to just see a list of everything new and everything popular...thats it!

I should have clarified, I'm browsing the app store on a pc. My ipad is on order. Hovering over the app store tab does not display any categories, maybe I just have to wait for my ipad but it seems strange not to be able to browse by category using the itunes app store on my pc...

Oh, itunes....I found the best way to get a good list in iTunes is to type iPad, then select iPad apps containing iPad....yes its a really stupid workaround, but it works really well and I wish you could do it on the device app store!

There isn't a subsection for those, at least I've never noticed one. I find search to be the most useful feature for finding apps. I just search using keywords. Scrolling through 50 million pages of crap in the sections just isn't fun.

Thanks for the replies! I'm amazed it's not better organized. I would think there would be a section for magazines, one for newspapers, kids apps, etc.
