App search tool Chomp, which was quietly , has since stopped serving results for Google's Android platform.
No word yet on what this means for Verizon, whichto deliver results in its own mobile application store. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the change.
Chomp launched in early 2010 as an alternate search tool for sifting through Apple's App Store, branching out to Google's Android platform the following year. Its technology provides results based on an app's function, instead of its name.
Apple confirmed its acquisition of the company but hasn't said what it intends to do with the technology. The search tools are expected to be built into Apple's App Store.
