View browsing history in iTunes Music Store Apps
When shopping around the iTunes Music Store, I mistakenly clicked and held the Back button. A Safari-like history of the previous 'pages' I had recently browsed popped up.

I also tried it with the Forward button, and it too behaves just like the navigation buttons in Safari. This feature wasn't a complete surprise, however, given iTunes' overall browser-like behavior.

View browsing history in iTunes Music Store

The iTunes Music Store is actually more of a website served up inside the iTunes application. So I'm guessing that the Music Store view is in fact a WebKit View, which is the same as a safari window :)

This means that to add the Back/Forward buttons to work the same as safari would be a cinch. Just add the buttons and link them to the webkit view as back/forward buttons. The OS then takes care of the code behind them and controls their behaviour.

This is just an example of how apple keeps consistency between their applications (sometimes!)
