Apple working on 'Concierge' iPhone app, Nashua store?

App would tie into Apple Store services

Apple is planning to launch a new iPhone app for visitors to its retail stores, several sources claim. So far dubbed "Concierge," the app is expected to mimic the company's web-based reservations system, which lets users schedule Genius Bar and One to One appointments. Users should also be able to monitor various types of membership subscriptions. No date for the app's release has so far been leaked.

Another source meanwhile suggests that Apple is readying a store for Nashua, New Hampshire, inside the Pheasant Lane Mall. The location would only be Apple's second in the state, joining one in Salem. Both are within convenient driving distance of Boston, Massachusetts, likely an intentional move in order to take advantage of cross-border shoppers. New Hampshire lacks a state sales tax, which can make major purchases there substantially cheaper. Boston nevertheless has several Apple Stores of its own.

    Oh, good

    Another completely unhelpful way to aid customers. Here's an idea. Put up a sign telling customers to sign in if they have to sign in. I've seen too many people walking around trying to get someone's attention to only be finally told "Oh, you need to sign in".
