Website lists only iOS apps
Apple has severed all Android ties in the app discovery service Chomp, GigaOM reports. The Android app has been discontinued; on the Chomp website, "Android" has been removed as a search option, leaving only iPhone and iPad titles. The service lets users sort through apps with more specific criteria than an app store normally allows.
Chomp was bought out by Apple in February. The acquisition is believed to be paving the way for improved search at the iOS App Store, which has often been criticized for making it hard to find specific apps. While visitors can browse through charts and categories, and special highlight pages, it can often be difficult to locate an app with a particular function in mind.
