iPad App Store Gets Search Filters, Previous Purchases Update

by on February 4th, 2011

Today Apple updated the iPad App Store to feature previous purchases and new search filters.

iPad App Store Search Filters

Now when users browse the App Store from an iPad and search for an app, five filters will be available under the top main bar:

  • Category
  • Release Date
  • Rating
  • Price
  • Device

The filters can be adjusted from a popover and there is also a button to clear the filters. Check it out!

iPad App Store Previous Purchases

Along with the search filter update, Apple also updated the general iOS App Store will a new previous purchases feature. Now, if users previously installed an app, for example if purchased before, the app will have an “Install” button instead of a “Buy” button in the App Store.

This feature will significantly clear up the confusion when users go to re-download a previously purchased app, only to see the worrisome “Buy” button. Now instead of second-guessing if you purchased an app or not, it will be clearly listed.
