The app discovery service that was acquired by Apple awhile back called Chomp has recently removed the Android option from its website based search. On top of that, the Android based application for Chomp has also gone missing from the Google Play Store. The change reportedly happened only recently and it is still unknown as to how this would alter the partnership that was agreed upon between Chomp and Verizon for app discovery but the only thing that we do know is that the service is no longer available for use on Android.
The app discovery service is however still available for iOS and if Apple intends on building it into an upcoming OS, it could take the same path that the voice-assistant, Siri took. It was an app when the company acquired it but when Apple decided to integrate the feature into the iPhone 4S, it disappeared from the iOS App Store. With Chomp missing from Android app store, users will still have access to alternate options such as AppsFire and AppAware that rate highly in the Google Play Store with AppsFire allegedly edging the latter out slightly.
