What Google can learn from Apple's latest changes to their App Store

Making the most of the keynote at WWDC, the Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference, the Cupertino firm announced the remodeling of their app store. The new App Store, which will be available with iOS 11 next autumn, has gained a new look after 9 years of good and loyal service.

It’s no secret that Google is still experiencing difficulties in helping users to discover new apps and games. The number of apps available on Google Play Store means that users often bypass practical and useful apps, because they are little known and the organization lacks clarity. In short, the Play Store is a jungle, but Google hasn’t really done anything to improve the situation except small aesthetic retouches on the rare occasion.

Returning to the essence of an app store: app discovery

Apple understood.

While the last last is a mechanical form that has a shape similar to that of a human foot two categories already existed, the first three are new to the app.
