App Store changes: search filters, install buttons for iPad

Apple has made several notable changes to the App Store interface on the iPad. When searching for an item or term, new filter buttons appear as a toolbar at the top of the results page, allowing users to filter the results by category, release date, customer rating, price, and device compatibility, reports Macstories. Also changed is the App Store’s behavior with previously-purchased apps. In the past, if a user went to download a previously-purchased app that was not installed on the device, he or she was presented with the standard price button, followed by a “buy now” button. Only after the user was sent back to the Home screen for installation did a notice pop up that the item was previously purchased and could be installed at no charge. Now, apps that have been purchased, but are not installed on the device, are displayed with an “install” button beside them, denoting that they can be downloaded and installed without incurring further charges.
