As if Apple didn't have enough on its plate today, there's one more thing. Now you can order Apple products directly from the Apple Store iOS app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Compatible with any device running iPhone OS 3.0 or higher, users can do pretty much anything they'd do on the Apple website or in-store. That includes ordering products and accessories, scheduling one-on-one appointments, visiting the Genius Bar and reading customer reviews.

And you can even tap in to reserve a personal copy of the iPhone 4, which goes up for pre-sale today whenver the online retail store ever goes live again.

The app is free and available for downloading from iTunes now. Sounds like a useful, but maybe too tempting, application.
