Apple enables Genius Recommendations in iPad app store


Apple has enabled ‘Genius Recommendations’ in the iPad’s app store.

Genius Recommendations functions similarly to the genius on the iPhone. On the iPad  Genius Recommendations even has it’s own tab – see screenshot above.

Apple takes a screenshot of your applications, uploads this information to their servers, runs the list through an algorithm, and posts back a list of suggested apps to your screen. Before this is enabled you need to agree to their terms as you are uploading information from your iPad to Apple, although we are told this is anonymous!

What suggestions did you get? So for on my iPad there  is the following suggestions.

  • ABC News for iPad
  • BMW Magazine
  • DIE Welt
  • Super 7
