Locking customers out of the store
It seems to be a marketing flaw to send an app update that no longer lets your device access it. You have the creativity to develop update filters which would avoid this. So "window shopping" - looking into the Apple Store App on my iPad - dreaming of future purchases is no longer possible. Sure I can go the long way through a browser, but wait, isn't that why the idea of apps was developed? To speed access to portals increasing convince for the customer? I get the planned obsolescence up to a point. But this is YOUR STORE APP! Where customers CAN upgrade YOUR product. Oh wait, let's make that more inconvenient? You've saved me a lot of money on impulse buying to upgrade my laptop, iwatch, iPhone, all because I didn't yet upgrade my iPad!? So I guess this is a thank you!
Buying apples is much easier with this app than browsing through web browsers. I always use it to check for workshops at the apple store near my house which is awesome! Plus it sends you notification when my order is ready to pickup. Classic apple experience, simple, beautiful, and bugless :)
Needs to be built for Apple TV
I wish I was able to write an update to my original review. However, it still holds and no update is needed.
If apps are the future of TV/Apple TV, I'm amazed the Apple Store isn't on tvOS. Please listen to consumers and act. Apple makes statements that suggests that they put their customers at the center of everything they do. I simply hope that they read this review and realize that there're a lot of people like me that may not have taken the time to write this review. I look forward to change.
