How to Use Your iPhone to Find Apps
2 of 4
Use the Categories button to find exactly what you want.
Know exactly what you’re looking for? Instead of simply browsing, you can tap the Search icon and type a word or phrase.
Or use the Categories button, which appears at the top of the Featured and Charts sections, which works a little differently because it has no apps. Instead, it offers a list of categories such as Games, Newsstand, Entertainment, Utilities, and Social Networking, to name a few.
Tap a category to see either a page full of apps of that type or a list of subcategories for that type. For example, the Games category offers subcategories such as Action, Arcade, Kids, Music, and Puzzle. Other categories have no subcategories — you’ll go directly to the page full of apps when you tap them.
To make your browsing easier, each category or subcategory page has four sections — New, What’s Hot, Paid, and Free.
