Opinion: Apple’s App Store Discovery Is Broken

App Store can learn from Amazon.

Opinion: Apple’s App Store Discovery is broken. It’s hard to find games unless they are in the Top 25, Top 50, or Featured. It takes too many clicks to find them by Verticals, e.g., by Entertainment, Utilities, etc. Not sure App Store “Genius” will be better, as current music implementation seems klugey. Current App Store “Search” function takes too many clicks and results are by alphabetical “publisher” and “game name” results, not Google-style relevance. Proposed Solution? Recommendations by relevance customized to you. Amazon Store style recommendations and user reviews.
