How to Use Your Computer to Find iPhone Apps

Use the Search field in the App store.

Browsing the screen is helpful, but if you know exactly what you’re looking for, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that there’s a faster way than browsing: Just type a word or phrase in the Search Store field in the upper-right corner of the main iTunes window, and then press Enter or Return to initiate the search. The figure shows the result of a search for flashlight.

The bad news is that you have to search the entire iTunes Store, which includes music, television shows, movies, and other stuff in addition to iPhone apps.

Your search results are segregated into categories — one of which is iPhone Apps. And here’s even more good news: If you click the See All link to the right of the words iPhone Apps, all iPhone apps that match your search word or phrase appear.

Click the little downward-pointing triangle to the right of each item’s price to display a drop-down menu, as shown for the first Flashlight app. This menu lets you add the product to your wish list, send an e-mail with a link to this product, copy the link to this product to the Clipboard so you can paste it elsewhere, or share it on Facebook or Twitter.
