The ‘Great Canadian Apps’ Section in the App Store Gets a Makeover

Apple has given the ‘Great Canadian Apps’ section of the App Store a light makeover to further highlight the best and most popular apps for Canadians. The new design of this app section now has a black background with red coloured font, which provides a more distinct ‘Canadian’ feel. The section is described as follows:

This new refreshed section is now ‘featured’ in the Canadian App Store, and can be seen on the front page of the App Store on the iPhone and iPad.
