Well, it looks like there’s a rumor to add on to that of earlier today which spoke of updated stock iOS applications. 9to5Mac is reporting that sources have told them that the next major version of iOS will include a redesign of the 3 major store applications: the iTunes Store, the App Store, and the iBookstore. The redesigns, sources reported, are to be major, and focus on improving interactivity when purchasing items from the respective store. Facebook and social integration is said to be a large part of what is being tested, at least in the iTunes Store.
Also, if you remember, Apple purchased a company named Chomp, which was a way for users to easily search for applications that fit their tastes, making for faster and more efficient discoverability of new apps. The interesting thing about this is it appears Apple has not completely implemented or made use of the purchase yet it in iOS 6, as it doesn’t seem to be ready in their eyes. Apple is still reportedly going to update the OS X equivalents of these as well in the future.
What do you think of this? Hoping they will be easier to use now? Maybe not exit you to the home screen every time you purchase an app? Let us know in the comments.
