There are definitely some nicer things about it, but as I've said repeatedly, there's a huge flaw. There's no way within the App Catalog to see all of the apps that even just came out today anymore.
I mean, seriously, 114 apps were new or updated today (which I can only see looking through Preware), and I can see 50 of those in the App Catalog without drilling down into categories. In other words, using the App Catalog, there's more new/updated apps that came out today that I have no way of knowing about than the ones that are displayed to me.
I don't mean to be a jerk about it, but honestly, I don't see how I'm the only person seeing an issue with this. Most apps are impulse buys. If you want to have apps exposed to users, you can't expect them to drill down into each category to see what's new, you're lucky if they even check the what's new page in the first place. Honestly, if I was a developer trying to make any money in the Catalog, I'd be furious about it.
