Apple Adds “Genius” Section To iPad App Store

by on August 7th, 2010

This week, Apple has updated the iPad App Store to include a new “Genius” tab. The new section provides users with app recommendations that the user may enjoy.

The Genius for Apps is similar to Genius for music (iPod app) by anonymously sending information about a users downloaded apps to Apple. The genius function also uses App Store purchase history to provide more accurate app recommendations.

For those concerned about privacy, Genius only sends information when the Genius function is turned on.

iPad owners can enable Genius by visiting the App Store on the iPad, tapping on the Genius tab, and then tapping the selection to turn on Genius.
