Access the App Store by tapping the App Store icon on the Home screen. You can start by exploring the Featured or Top Choices categories (see the buttons along the bottom of the screen). Or you can tap Explore and find apps divided into categories. Tap an app to see more information about it.

Here are some interesting apps to explore:
