Remember my article “10 Things I Hate About the App Store“? Maybe Apple was listening (yeah, right), because word has leaked out of Cupertino that they’re building a whole new iTunes, incorporating more efficient search and other features.
Apple has acquired an Internet startup called Chomp, a search engine for Android apps that makes it easier to find the apps you’re looking for amid the sea of available mobile software. It’s also said to handle Genius-type recommendations significantly better than iTunes, though this acquisition obviously means that Chomp will be switching from the Android Marketplace to the iTunes App Store.
The new version of iTunes is said to be simpler, more user-friendly, faster, and a whole new level of interactivity.
I say this new version of iTunes can’t possibly get here fast enough!
