Apple Brings Retail Experience to iPad With First Shopping App
Apple wants to make holiday shopping easier with the iPad's first-ever retail app, which comes loaded with features to make product discovery more seamless. The Apple Store for iPad is designed specifically for iOS 7, capitalizing on using gestures to find more products from Apple's online store. It essentially wraps up everything currently listed for sale on Apple.com and packages it up in one easy-to-navigate app. Since iPhone users typically use their devices to look up store directions and get information about products quickly, Apple created a different experience for the iPad with deeper swipe, zoom and gesture functionality.
