Apple kills Android searches on Chomp


Courtesy for competitors is a thing of the past as Apple removed Android support from app discovery firm Chomp, a company they purchase just a few months ago. It was a silent kill; no mention or blog post. It simply ceased to exist on their homepage.

The battle for mobile domination has been heating up since Google tossed their fighter in the ring. There is an uncomfortable symbiotic relationship between Google and Apple as they still need each other for some components of their programs. Google needs to still be a search option on iPhones and iPads with the rise in mobile search revenue while Apple still needs Google to make their devices fully-capable in a world that is so reliant on Google search.
