Apple Acquires Chomp

Lauren Goode:

Apple on Thursday confirmed it has acquired San Francisco-based start-up Chomp, which operates a search engine for apps, for an undisclosed amount.

In my experience (having tried Chomp once several years ago) app discovery1 engines have never been good, no matter what algorithm they try. Maybe Apple can get it right? Maybe.
