As revealed in a Super Bowl ad  for Star Trek: Into Darkness , Apple has now launched a new system using vanity URLs  for app developers on its iPhone and iPad iOS platform. The URLs are linked after the address appstore.com/ and Apple's explained  to developers that you can adjust these links between individual app names and the company name (and between the Mac App Store  and the iOS one).
Apple already has distinct URLs for its apps so that users can look up the details on a website, but the new system promises to be much easier to access from a consumer point of view simply because it's more memorable. Apple recently revealed  that there are over 800,000 apps on the iOS app store , so app discovery is a critical part  of the business from a developer point of view. A separate push is attempting  to get ".app" registered as a new global Top Level Domain  name, in a different but equally simplified vanity promotion to Apple's.
