Alright, lets go back to business. Like I said, the iTunes App Store now has its own Facebook page. It was developed and powered by a company called Vitrue. And it basically puts the Apps Store inside Facebook allowing you to search apps, share cool apps with friends or to simply look out for the hottest apps that you will most likely install on your iPhone.
But the cool thing is, if you found an app worth downloading, you can just click on the “get app” button on the Facebook page and it will automatically fires up the Apps Store if you got iTunes installed on your computer.
The iTunes App Store Facebook Page also lets you share your latest and the hottest apps you found with your friends on Facebook. And since we’ve mention finding apps, the Apps Store Facebook Page also has a nice search and share feature which lets you search for specific apps and when you found something you can immediately post it to your Facebook Wall for all your friends to see.
Other features of the iTunes App Store Facebook Page include – featured apps which give you the top-selling iPhone/iPod apps as well as view the sales figure of paid and free apps. You can also browse through the top-selling games and download anything you find interesting right away.
