Apple Store App Update Makes Shopping Quicker Than Ever

Apple Store App Update Makes Shopping Quicker Than Ever

The official Apple Store app has just gotten an incremental update, which now makes it easier than ever to give Apple your money.

The big new feature is Express Checkout, which like Apple’s official website, lets you buy items with your default billing and shipping information with just a tap.

The other feature — exclusive to the iPhone 4S — is a geolocation feature that alerts local Apple Store employees when you’ve arrived to pick up an order. This should make it a lot quicker to pick up your new MacBook Pro than flagging down a random specialist when you arrive, then waiting for him to go in back and find your item.

You can download the new update through the App Store.
