  • Appstore UI First Real Pics
    Have you been wondering what the appstore will look like? Drunkenbass of monsterandfriends.com (known for the first video recording on the iPhone) has been kind enough to share the first screenshots of the upcoming appstore with us here @ modmyi.com



    He was just bored pressing buttons on his phone and suddenly instead of getting the normal "cannot connect" message that he had previously encountered, appstore launched revealing the appstore UI. Browsing around he found that the Genres and Top 50 categories contained a few apps.

    As you can see from the pictures it seems that Apple is currently just doing some testing off appstore and its functionality. There are two current categories and within them are a couple of webapps? I would speculate that Apple is using webapps just to test the menus of appstore, along with a potential rating system for apps. There also appears to be a little area for the icon of the app to appear, letting you know what icon will appear on your phone's springboard once you install an app.

      Oh my god! I just checked at it's really there! I guess Apple saw this though and removed the webapps because both categories are empty now...THANKS A LOT CASH :P j/k

      Why would the apps, that aren't even supposed to be released yet, have reviews and ratings. What happened to the timeout error that usually happens when you connect to the App Store.
      No I just checked, it's just a test, if you tap the app the page that appears is blank. This is real though.

      that's funny how apple just removed the apps. it's one of two reasons. either apple was done with whatever tests they were taking, or (more likely) they saw that people already had access to it and took it down because of that.

      Ah.

      It is kind of unrelated, but if you have IDA Pro, join me in looking for the URL that it checks for things in the AppStore. Then we just have to find the user agent that it uses, a la, how Installer.app uses 'AppTapp', then we can go in and try to replicate an AppStore repository. That would be the ultimate pwnage on Apple.

      I really think it would be wise if the makers of installer were to mirror the appstore as much as possible. I love the idea of being able to see the icon. And the top 50 would be awsome as well. And search, then i wouldnt have to spend like 10 minutes scrolling and scrolling looking for one app.

      looks cool, but its just installer that you're gonna have to pay for. Like itunes instead of limewire. Apple is just trying to catch up with all of the people who made their own installer and apps.

      The appstore is meant to be grey, yes. When Apple showed it on March the 6th, it was also shades of grey!. They might change it before release date though, but I don't mind the colours.
