I never had this issue w/my htc
My first try at apple, just got the iphone4s as my contract was ready and all I hear is iphone this and ios that.
What cr@p! Siri takes more time loading the map then me driving there. I can access half of the app store....and this is day TWO of my first apple product ever.
I'm going back to android.

Your right, we can buy apps but only from the charts section. Sorry but I wanna choose which apps im able to view n buy n not be forcefed whats on the "charts".

Actually, you can search for and buy apps from iTunes on a computer, then you can download them from the Purchased tab on the iPad. If you turn auto-download on under iTunes and App Store in Settings, they will appear automatically on your device when you buy them on your computer. A right proper pain, but functional.
BTW, I sent Apple Support an email and they said they are working on it. At least they acknowlege it.

I started having this issue on 10/11/12. In the app store the only thing that shows up at all is the genius feature. Otherwise, all I get is a blank screen. I can't even get categories, tapping that button does nothing. I am on an iPhone 4. My husband got the same phone on the 11th, and his works fine. Very frustrating! First Apple product and I've had it just over a month. I miss my Android right now.

Yep. Same issue. When I first updated to IOS6, the app store stopped working. Did a soft reset and all was good. Two nights ago was searching for apps and reading reviews, when suddenly all of the reviews went blank, so I exited the app store. Went back in and have been unable to access anything except a blank screen for all of the functions. Featured, Charts, Search all blank. I can access Genius and I'm able to update current apps, but that is it. I have done multiple soft resets plus I erased all data and did a restore to no avail.
Another user suggested buying apps from Itunes directly on your pc. I'm trying this now, but it is taking foreever to install.
Update: The app will not install.

Even if installing from ur pc did work, thats like buying a Ferrari then taking the bus. Your still getting to ur destination, but its a major pain in the butt n u didnt arrive in style. N what about the millions of iphone users who dont have pcs for this? Screwed i guess. I fortunately have a pc but Im not even trying it. That for me is just unacceptable. I bought the phone to work the way its supposed to. Not to spend my day finding then performing work arounds. Thankfully, a post from earlier said Apple acknowledged the problem. Like GI Joe said " knowing is half the battle".

GReyhaus here again. Issue seems resolved. I did nothing but wait and 24 hours after I posted my first reply here all seems well. I can search for apps see categories and charts. Full functionality of App Store restored on my iPhone 4S running iOS 6. Thanks to all for posting I'm sure it makes a difference. Apple seems to have fixed the App Store for everyone.

Pdroth, all on its' own like GreyHaus?
If on its' own, did you connect it to your computer and iTunes?
Currently Being ModeratedOct 13, 2012 5:08 PM (in response to ken5)
Yup... Saw he posted his was working then tried mine and its working normally again.
I didn't do anything other than wait.

Thanks! I just checked and everything is back except charts. Guess that might come back soon.
I was just about to restore the phone, I am glad I got the email that you posted in this thread.

Call me crazy, but my Internet seems to be super fast now. I was experiencing delays hitting websites last 2 days and suddenly everything is very snappy.

I had similar issue, could not search or see any apps in the App Store on my iPhone after upgrade to iOS 6. I shutdown my iPhone. It was fine after I restarted it.
