New iOS6 AppStore differs from the previous version. It changes the way users browse apps and makes it easier for indie developers and small companies to position.
The most important changes are:
- Users can share your app on Facebook, Tweet about it etc. right from the AppStore
- Your app can be found in Genius – the AppStore recommendation system
- While browsing – user see your app’s card which contains icon, title and first screenshot
