The App Store’s Crummy Search Results

Allen Pike, on the bizarrely low placement for Tweetbot and Twitterrific when searching the App Store for “twitter”:

This might make some sort of sense for somebody new to the App Store, but for a person who’s trying to find a specific type of app it’s crazy-making. Suggesting Instagram when I search for Twitter is like suggesting Nickelback when I search for Said the Whale. It’s saying, “Not sure what that means, but statistically people like this thing.”

More curation, please.
