iOS 6 To Include Redesigned App Store

3 June 2012

9to5Mac:

The overhauls are said to be major and they focus on improved interactivity when making purchases in iTunes, the App Store, and the iBookstore. Social is a big piece of the store overhauls, and Facebook integration is being tested in the iTunes Store portion, at least.

Although 9to5Mac goes on to say that Chomp technology will not be ready in time, seeing Apple commit to improving app discoverability is a very good sign. Federico Viticci, at MacStories, compiled several developers’ views on ‘the App Store problem’ a few weeks ago. Hopefully Apple was working on some of the ideas that were suggested.
