App Store on iPhone or iPad is one destination where developers and end-users interact; for app developers, it's a marketplace where they can showcase their cool apps; in a way, they put their knowledge and intelligence on display. In turn, users appreciate or sometimes censure for their glitches.
Every day, Apple approves, disproves and deletes thousands of apps on its App Store. Apart from this shuffling of apps, Apple also makes necessary changes in the layout & buttons; such changes take place behind the curtains, and therefore, we cannot see them apparently. Moreover, these are subtle changes for which Apple doesn't wait for new iOS release. During these happenings, App Store may fall into a little mess, leaving users confused.
