Apple’s list of the Top Paid and Top Free apps in the App Store has been expanded, at least on an iPhone/iPod touch. Now, instead of maxing out at No. 50, the list goes to up to No. 300. This also appears to work on the category listings as well.
While Apple should be commended for this change, one significant problem remains. Whenever a user clicks and purchases an app on the list, the App Store resets and you must start at the beginning of the list again. This is fine using Wi-Fi, but is very slow when using a 3G connection.
Still, giving the Top 300 apps this type of exposure is nice.
Within iTunes, these lists appear to stop at No. 200, while on the iPad, No. 100.
