Apple just released iOS 11 – the next chapter of Apple’s mobile operating system and with it comes a all new redesigned App Store. Personally, I believe that instead of taking the App Store in the right direction – Apple has messed up the App Store completely. Apple’s plan was to redo the App Store so that it would be easier for users to discover new Apps and make it simpler for developers to get their Apps in front of new customers, but the new design looks utterly confusing.
The new ‘cards’ based design layout is way more complicated than before and will only make things more complicated. Instead of swiping left which should have been the case, users now have to keep scrolling down endlessly. On the bright side, the individual App pages do look cleaner than before.
To me, it just does seem to be solving the App Store discoverability issue. Have you updated to iOS 11 yet? What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
