Agree or disagree? Time for an App Store reset?

  • May 1st, 2012

I chanced upon a blog post titled It’s Time for an App Store Reset. While not at all fair for some apps, the idea of having a view of the App Store minus minus the stale, old and broken sounds appealing.

I would appreciate a purifying rain to cleanse the App Store of cruft. If Apple pressed a rest button and removed all apps that have not been updated in the past 12 months I would buy more. I would worry less about abandon-ware but it would also be easier to identify the cream of the crop apps.

Agree or disagrees? This could be solved with a simple client side filter – exclude all apps which have not been updated in ‘xx’ months.
