Apple Store app overhauled with cross-platform shopping features, fresh design

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Ahead of an expected iPhone unveiling on Sept. 9, Apple on Thursday rolled out an updated version of its Apple Store app for iOS, introducing cross-device shopping support, enhanced imagery and refined navigation.




The Apple Store version 3.0 update features a design inspired by the made-for-iPad iteration, with large high-resolution graphics and gesture-based user interface controls modeled after the iOS 7 template.

Aside from the front-end polish, Apple bolstered the app's feature set to include support for cross-platform shopping. According to the release notes, users can start shopping on one device, like an iPhone or iPad, and finish using a Mac or even a PC. Synchronization likely takes place through iCloud.

In addition, Apple Store for iPhone comes with a new Stores tab that provides up-to-date information on upcoming events and workshops taking place at nearby brick-and-mortar Apple Stores.

Finally, the universal app brings support for One to One reservations on iPad.

Apple Store for iOS is a free 23.4MB download from the App Store.

It would have been a great day to have made it international. What countries does it currently work in? US only? One country?

Seems like I was able to download this from Canada (iPad version).

The app and UI is gorgeous. So clean and fluid.

Does anyone know if the iPhone 5/5S were available to pre-order as contract-free on Verizon? I'd like to go pay as you go with Verizon, and am hoping I can get the 6 as early as if I bought w/contract.

Love the new design - much easier to locate my local store now also. Biggest concern for me will be making sure I don't spend too much time(money) on there...

Appeared to be a few things missing at first like store photos and the free app giveaway on the store page but that all seems to be resolved now. There's even a new free app on there now which wasn't meant to happen until 12th September - Bonus!!
