"James Thomson of PCalc fame noted late yesterday on Twitter that the App Store's again updated the way it deals with app sorting: 'Looks like sort by release date in [the] App Store only sorts by original release date now, not update date. Say hello to page 342 of Utilities...'"
Basically what they have done is changed the way the apps are sorted, using the original release date instead of the last date the app was updated. From what I gather, there was some abuse of this by developers, doing minor updates to get their app higher on the sort list. I'm all about fixing the abuse, but this isn't the right way. Perhaps an option to display the list you want, as in last updated, new release, etc. What are your thoughts, good? Bad?
