The popular app store just got an upgrade.

Apple recently unveiled a new section called Free in the App Store containing three sub-categories: “New & Noteworthy,” “Try Before You Buy” and “Our Favorites,” the tech blog Pocket-Lint reports. The reorganization of the apps is meant to help users easily navigate through the store’s free options.

The store now eliminates the need to fish through “lite” versions of apps that prompt users to purchase the full versions. In adding the “Try Before You Buy” section, the lite apps are now separated from the free full-version apps.
