I absolutely hate the new App Store.

Hi, I just joined but my iPad mini has a different AppStore setup than my iPhone 4 & I only see 10 or 20 apps in each category now.
Where are the rest???

My iPhone will let me scroll for hours through apps and I find lots of good apps in my searches....I.see the same 20+ apps over & over on iPad AppStore & I hate it.

How do I find the rest???

It's pretty and all, but it is really slow and laggy to run, really discourages a lot of us from browsing to find new apps cause it is so slow. Plus the new release section is gone, and also loading my purchase history just gets locked up which sucks.

So overall, fail, don't even use appstore anymore really to search for stuff like I did before, so I'm sure there are a lot of people that don't surf through it, wish it was faster.

Yeah the new App Store is rubbish, even on my iPad 4 it is slow and laggy, and I have no interest in it anymore, on the last App Store I found myself looking through it for ages without thinking about it. The purchase history needs to be better as well, from what I can see it doesn't include a price or when you bought apps, kind of missing the point of a purchase history...

I prefer seeing multiple apps with one (scrolling) gesture. Now it's one swipe per app

It's also subtly discriminating against landscape apps as the landscape screenshots occupy a lot less space than portrait ones. And that matters!

Doesn't this just put more emphasis on the keyword searches?

iPad 4. Crashes occasionally, lags, takes a while to load, etc. and my wifi's quite decent.

It was much speedier with iOS 5.

I hate the iOS 6 store app too, hope it gets fixed.. btw, I got a BlackBerry Dev Alpha B, their store app loads pretty fast and you can browse lots of apps very quickly, think about the previous iOS store app list but much more faster, no need to tap "see 25 more" or anything, really fast and smooth, and it's a test device.. hope Apple fixes the damn thing, really.
