Apple fans can take advantage of a new application from Apple, Inc. that allows you to shop online at Apple.com and even make reservations at your local Apple Store location.
Released today, the new application is a free download from the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. Within moments, you can shop online for products and accessories via this fast and convenient interface without having to fire up your mobile browser. The interface is streamlined for mobile usage with a clean look and feel and a familiar App Store layout.
Within this application you can read purchase or reviews on products, discover the nearest Apple Store location and check on local in-store events.
The best part may be the ability to quickly and easily make in-store reservations for the Genius Bar. If you've ever been away from your computer and needed to see the Genius Bar, you probably already know the frustration of trying to see someone in the store. You can't make an appointment on the phone, and using a mobile browser is a tedious affair.
Now within moments, the new app can locate you, the closest store and show you the best available times in a few screen taps. Certainly a welcome addition to any iPhone, iPad or iPod users repertoire of apps, and best of all, it's free.
