Getting Apps from Your iPhone’s App Store

You can also download apps wirelessly from your iPhone’s App Store. Just tap on the App Store app and you’ll be connected to the same App Store as if you were doing it via iTunes, however, this App Store is formatted specifically for your iPhone. You can browse the New and Noteworthy or What’s Hot Featured apps, or you can look through the Paid, Free, and Top Grossing Charts, as well as Categories, or check out the apps recommended by Genius. If you know the name of the app you’re looking for, you can tap Search and type the name of the app to search for it. You can also use the Genius feature here (more on using this with music in Chapter 10). Once you find an app you want to download to your iPhone, tap on it, then just tap the price (or Free) button, then tap the Buy Now (or Install App) button, and you’ll be asked to enter your Apple ID username and password. The app will be downloaded and installed directly on your iPhone. The next time you sync your iPhone with your computer, the app will be downloaded to your iTunes Apps Library for backup (if you have that preference set).
