Apple omits Android searches from Chomp app

Cupertino follows up Chomp acquisition by making it a one OS party

TechRadar rating:

4 stars

A solid and nice interface makes for easy selection of applications and the choice is almost limitless. It's just a shame the limits are so strict

Like:

Good interface; Nice selection of apps;

Dislike:

Closed source; No rival apps to Apple's own;

While it's hardly a surprise, Apple has removed the ability to search for Android apps from its recently-acquired Chomp service.

Back in February, Cupertino snapped-up the San Francisco-based start-up, with a view to improving application search and discovery within its own App Store.

SInce then, the web-based version of the service has still allowed users to search for Android applications as well as iPhone and iPad apps.

Not anymore.

Making the Genius smarter

The Chomp application has also been removed from the Google Play store.

It is still unclear what Apple plans to do with Chomp long-term, but the company will surely find a way to integrate the tech within the App Store and perhaps improve Genius recommendations.
