Apple cut Android from freshly-acquired Chomp app search engine

chomp-top.jpgApple has removed the ability to search for Android-related software through Chomp, the app search engine they acquired back in February.

Apple bought the start-up company with the aim of improving their own app search processes within the App Store. It appears that part of those “improvements” included cutting support for anyone who uses a rival Google-powered phone.

As such, the Android app version of Chomp has now been pulled from the Google Play Store, while the web-browser version now only facilitates searches for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch apps.

It’s not a surprising move by any means, but that offers little recompense to Android users who had found Chomp a valuable resource previously.
