Apple adds Genius recommendations to iPad App Store

Apple adds Genius recommendations to iPad App Store Apple has updated the iPad App Store this week, allowing tablet owners to use Genius recommendations when looking for apps.
Opening the App Store on your tablet will give you the option to "Genius" (right next to "Updates"). After enabling it, users are given a list of apps they may want to try out, based on their past choices and downloads.

The iPhone/Touch App Store has had the option for a couple of years now, but now iPad tablet owners have the same ability.

Apple's Genius recommendations for the iPad work exactly like the iPhone/Touch version, giving an option to upgrade from free apps to their paid counterparts, as well. If you are completely uninterested in an app, tick "not interested" to ensure the same app will not show up again.

The company recently debuted "Try Before You Buy" for the App Store, as well, which gives users a chance to demo paid apps before buying it.

LOL...they made a section where they took every app that is available in at least 2 versions, removed them from their systematic categories, and then just dumped them all in one place randomly...or at least that was the goal; in reality, they only did this for a handful of apps.

Genius? What the hell? It's more like an insult to the iDevices users. It's too arrogant really. The whole reason why people attached to the iDevices because they're lazy and not inclined to learn, now Apple is calling them Genius.
