App Discovery

Hey guys,

I noticed the latest iOS iTunes App Store removed the ability to see the chronological order of apps released. It just shows top paid/top free/top grossing.

I noticed the OS X iTunes App Store now does the same thing... I can only view the chronological order under subsections for the 'Games' category.

How are you finding the latest and new apps? I'm confused. I used to browse on weekends and have fun discovering new apps that websites didn't cover

This has tons of views... I guess no one really cares?

l usually use AppShopper. Or I just browse the iPhone games section on the forum on Wednesdays to see what's being released that night.

I'm actually interested to know if you ever found anything decent in there. With all the new apps bombarding the store on a daily basis, all I ever saw in that list was complete junk, which I'm guessing is the reason it was removed. Sure, there are hidden gems on the store, but even those I found through forum topics or deals apps and never the store itself.
