Apple buys Chomp for 50 mill off a couple of Aussie inventors who now live in the states.

I would guess this is part of apples revamped iTunes store coming soon ( about time) O and one interesting thing will be Chomp also does Android, I wonder how lone it will before, that gets the chomp, from the selection window ( via www.chomp.com)


If you have never used chomp to find apps for your iPhone or iPad, you don't know what your missing... its brilliant.

Apple should by up all the cool apps in the Android Market Place and then start selling them for $10 :mosking:

I've actually never used Chomp before, I've been missing out. I'm sure we'll see Android search dropped off pretty soon.

Thanks, Ken. I missed that one.

Have you guys tried Discovr Apps? One of the great Aussie apps!

I've read about the Discovr Apps. The Discovr Movie one was free on Friday and I was lazy downloading it so I missed out...:(

But they look really good.

I think they will use the search engine component of it, which would be brilliant.
