Apple today outlined a number of changes headed to the App Store that will benefit both consumers and developers alike. The App Store will add a new explore tab, as well as a tool for viewing the top-trending searches and continuous scrolling in the search result screens. The new App Store will support app bundles, so developers will be able to package collections of their apps and sell them to consumers together. Apple is also giving developers the opportunity to beta test their apps through a program called TestFlight. Last, Apple said the iOS 8 SDK will include some 4,000 new APIs for developers to use for creating and enhancing applications. Part of the SDK includes extensibility, which will allow apps to extend the system and offer their services to other apps. Further, developers will be able to add widgets to the notification panel (similar to in OS X Yosemite). These will be able to show dynamic content, such as sports scores. The new iTunes App Store features will be available in the fall, along with the general release of iOS 8.
