Verizon's Android App Store will be powered by Chomp search engine
Even though it’s hard to say how many people actually resort to using Verizon’s very own Android App store for sniffing out new apps as opposed to using the Android Market, it’s getting a new makeover that should make the process a bit more streamlined.

Powered by Chomp’s search engine, the new redesigned Verizon App store is being tested out by developers this week in hopes of getting it up and ready for Android handsets sometime later in the year. Making it even easier to find specific apps, Chomp’s search engine allows you to search for things based on what they do – in addition to searching by name. Both Big Red and Chomp believe that this new process will make it easier for customers to find the correct apps for their devices.

Todd Murphy, Director of Consumer Solutions Group at Verizon said, “As the number of apps has exploded, app discovery can be a challenge for mobile users. Customers who use Verizon Apps store want to find the apps they want easily and quickly, and by integrating Chomp’s search engine, we’re enhancing that experience.”
