Earlier this year, Apple acquired an app search and discovery service called Chomp in hopes of simplifying iTunes for users. But despite the February takeover, app-seeking Android users have continued to benefit from Chomp’s services. Until today. In a move that shocked some, and shocked us that they were shocked, Apple has shut down Chomp for Android and dealt a significant, not to mention inevitable, blow to its main rival.
Fortunately for Android users, Chomp isn’t the only search and discovery service in town, and others, like AppsFire, happily cater to Google’s mobile community.
