I want to continue Ken's recent post on the subject of the app store by asking a question about one of my annoying problems. This concerns the problem of not being able to see 'the wood for the trees'. Let me explain. Yesterday, I made a terrible mistake by deleting my 'Apps Gone Free' app and wanted to get it back as quickly as possible.
Therefore, I went to the app store and searched for 'Apps Gone Free'. I thought that the 'Apps Gone Free' app was displayed in the list of possible apps along with 'apps gone bananas' and 'apps gone wild'. However, when I double tapped on 'apps gone free', I had a change in the search box to 'apps gone free, 237 results' and an app called 'transformers ledgens' and not 'apps gone free' with the new 'get' tab displayed. I scrolled through the apps on the page below this app and 'apps gone free' did not appear at all. What is happening please? I guess there are 237 apps with a name similar to 'apps gone free' but why did 'transformers ledgend' come up when I double tapped the 'apps gone free' app in the search list?
Also, I have great difficulty keeping my sanity scrolling through pages of apps to find what I want when I wrote the exact app name in the search box and what do I do when I get to the last app displayed in the list (this was only about 20 apps or so) to carry on down the list to find 'apps gone free'? I take that back though, I'd rather forget about 'apps gone free' than spend my time scrolling through a list of apps that do not interest me. I've got better things to do and my time is too valuble to do that! I wonder if app developers know about this problem as I guess they would be rather annoyed to find that it might be difficult for users to find and buy their apps if their apps have fairly common words in their app names and they are difficult or impossible in my case to locate?
