Some sub-categories, such as “Fantasy” and “Science Fiction & Literature,” are even divided into sub-sub-categories, for example, “Historical,” “Paranormal” etc. Sub-category “Erotica” will be under two sections, namely “Fiction & Literature” and “Romance.”

Busted Loop also reports that a little over 10% (16700 pcs.) of the App Store’s current applications have already been certified as being iPad-compatible. Furthermore, some of them can be compatible only with 3G version of iPad due to lack of GPS in WI-Fi version. The apps utilizing the iPhone’s camera will be interceded at all.
