    Apple Store

    by Apple

    There are few things as fun as walking out of the Apple store with a new piece of shiny. Apple’s iPhone kicks things up a notch by thinking differently. Aside from the usual store locator and product browsing features, Apple’s app lets you make Genius Bar appointments with your local store. You can see the status of previous orders and even pull up those receipts. The killer feature is the Easy Pay function when you’re in a physical Apple store. Want that iPhone cover? Just pull it off the shelf, scan the bar code, and pay using your iTunes credentials. No need to speak to a human, no waiting in line. Be sure this app is on your iPhone before you head out!
