Apple details the new App Store design and features

With the new iOS 11 release the other day, Apple has brought on a brand new App Store front-end design, too, replacing the aging interface with larger, colorful means to search and preview apps. The more important change is in its organization, though - Apple is now betting on curated app lists, just like Google Play introduced not long ago, plus daily tips, news and featurettes. 

Moreover, since it nixed the alternative way to access the App Store via iTunes on your computer, you are now only able to see it on your iPhone or iPad display, and it has been optimized to be easier on the eyes, more fun to use, and with more personalized, tailored feel. To celebrate the biggest changes to the App Store since its inception, Apple outed a series of videos detailing the changes, which you can see above. Do you like the new App Store design?

Actually, I felt that it is not so user friendly as it used to, I still prefer the older design.

Old design was simple and easier to navigate to find things. The new design is flashy and modern but he'll of a pain in the butt to find the apps you are looking for.

Not to mention the notification center, why the hack in the first place they combine the lockscreen with it?
