How to Use Your iPhone to Find Apps

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.
