In SharePoint 2013, you get one colour icons, no more filters, but the most popular apps on top.  The Apps You Can Add are sorted by newest by default, click on Name to get an alphabetical listing.  There is also a search box for the apps, you could just add a few letters of the app name and it will pick up – this does mean you have to know your apps in order to do that.
