iTunes Preview

iOS, App Store, iTunes

Last week, Apple removed the iOS App Store from iTunes. iTunes is now focused exclusively on music, movies, television, podcasts, and audiobooks. For me, it's a loss.

It's been almost two months since Apple launched the Mac App store on January 6.

While it does not quite deliver on that promise it does make things simpler than they have been in the past. It's a step in the right direction.
