Why Apple’s ‘Genius’ doesn’t work for Apps…

So, i’m browsing around the App store on the iPad today and i hit the ‘Genius’ tab. It’s not a function i’ve really used before now, because I never really saw the point of it… and guess what, I was right. All it does, is show me apps that are similar to the ones I already have!?!

If I have an App, and it’s still installed on my device, doesn’t that indicate that I’m happy that this App fulfils it’s purpose? Or are people constantly searching for ‘better’ apps to fulfil a purpose? Am I wrong? It seems strange to me, that’s all.
