App Store sort by release date

The iPad App Store has been updated, and has added the ability to sort by the Release Date for apps.  This is a small but very cool addition – as it makes it much easier to see new apps as they come in – although it’s brand new so I’m not sure how often it gets updated (hopefully daily or more).

To see apps sorted by release date, go to the Features section of the App Store and you’ll see it as the third tab on the right at the top of the screen (alongside New and What’s Hot).

Update: As Andrew has kindly pointed out in the comments, you can also sort by release date within categories.  It is the second tab at the top of the screen within category sections. Very cool.

  1. For new users, we want to go through the. App library, but you get sent back to the current date each time you download an app. So you make it back one month to review all. New apps after that but it takes you several minutes to arrow through every single page of apps. Can we not merely jump to a specific release date?

    1. I don't think that's possible right now within the App Store, and I agree it would be a nice feature – or at the least it would be nice to be able to have links for apps released Today / Yesterday / This Week.
