why is the app store so non user friendly?
 
I'm a soon to be ipad3 user, but when i want to search apple.com app store for a certain one, I only get music results?

Works for me. What are you looking for?

On2wheels April 18, 2012 07:32 PM

The Witcher 2 comic, The Steam client app, basically anything I know is there isn't showing up. I'm doing this on a laptop browser, not the ipad, in case that matters.

Huh. I can't find 'em either using intuitive methods. strange.

Would searching through iTunes help perhaps?

Apple just wants to force users to use itunes on their computers instead of web browsers that aren't made by Apple.

I was afraid of that, maybe I'll wait and just do it thru the pad when it arrives.

Google's Play Store works flawlessly online and in any browser :haha:

You have to realize, when you buy an Apple product, you are committing to doing things the way Apple tells you to do them. You have no other choice as there's only 1 supported method. Compared to Windows/Linux/Android where there's multiple ways of doing the same thing. One could argue for either side claiming it's better than the other, but really it's all personal choice.

Luckily I didn't pay for the ipad.

This is one of the many reasons why my iPhone 4 is my last iPhone.

As far as tablets go the iPad 3 is the best tablet. Sure it has flaws but so do all the android tablets. Hopefully windows will be better.
