Apple App Store gets new features in iOS 7
Replacing the Genius tab on the App Store is a new tab called Near Me which shows apps that are popular and are being used heavily by other iOS users near your current location. And you can now build a Wish List . Only paid apps can be added to the list, which makes sense. Otherwise, why would you need to wish for someone to pay for a free app? And Apple has promised a Kids category coming for the App Store.
Lastly, Apple has changed the looks of the App Store Top Charts, going back to a vertically scrolling list from the left to right scrolling that Apple changed the list to last year.

Is it popular with people "near me", apps created by people "near me", or what?

Popular with people near me. So basically if you went to an art museum, a lot of people there might have gotten an art app or something. That would end up on the list. It just gives a list of apps that are probably relevant to the place you are at by looking at what other people have gotten.

even for android I disable the auto update, so not a big gain for iOS. They should unlock the iOS file system so that user could import and export apps data.

New features in iOS are old features in Android.

I hate auto updates. Though I guess some like that feature, I'd rather not download a potentially buggy release without first waiting for some feedback on it.
