Apples sneaks new "Catalogs" category into App Store ahead of iPad 3 event

Apples sneaks new

It's the eve of Apple's highly anticipated iPad 3 event and Apple has snuck in a new "Catalogs" category into the App Store. The new Catalogs category is not yet available from the categories tab of the App Store, but you can see it in the description of some apps like Catalogue by TheFind as seen in the photo above.

This is interesting, to say the least. Apple doesn't often add new categories to the App Store. There are a lot of catalog apps in the App Store, so it will be nice to have a consistent place to find them (previously, you would find them in the Lifestyle or Utility sections.)

But again, with the iPad 3 event so very, very close, could there be something more to it?

Apples sneaks new "Catalogs" category into App Store ahead of iPad 3 event


Cant wait till tomorrow! Sick of the speculation...I just want to know! Its embarrassing how super excited I am!

Drawing, painting or design oriented apps should have their own category. Instead they're in entertainment, lifestyle or photography. iPad art is it's own HUGE movement.

I do believe all of the concepts you have introduced to your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for starters. Could you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

Excellent weblog here! Additionally your site rather a lot up fast! What web host are you the use of? Can I get your associate link to your host? I desire my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol
