After apple acquired Chomp, we knew it was just a matter of time before the app would be removed from Android and now it has happened. The app search service had been on Android for a while and was pretty useful, but not anymore.
The service was built by a team in San Francisco and could be found in both the Android Market and as the service powering Verizon’s Android app store. It was a good quality search service that people liked and in February, Apple acquired the company, presumably to implement the technology to the iTunes App Store.
It’s a good bet that that implementation is coming soon, because the Chomp website now only searches apps for iOS, and the Chomp app has been pulled from the Google Play Store. If you haven’t heard of Chomp yet, you soon will get to know it better.
