Apple’s App Store Gets a Smarter Search Engine ➝

Sarah Perez, writing for TechCrunch:

A number of mobile app developers and industry observers recently noticed a significant change in the way the Apple App Store’s search algorithms are returning results. Developers say that, following a series of shifts that took place beginning on November 3, app search results now appear to be more intelligent and far more relevant – especially among the top results – than in previous months.

This seems like a long overdue improvement. Developers and users alike have been complaining about the App Store’s poor search results for years. I hope we see more changed like this soon.
