Chomp is the search engine for finding and recommending mobile apps.
Chomp's proprietary algorithm learns the functions and topics of apps, so you can search based on what apps do, not just what they're called. Try searching for "puzzle games", "kids games", "expense trackers", "tip calculators" or "chat" and start finding great apps.
Chomp stores and analyzes data from each app search query to better understand how users interact with our app search technology.
Some highlights from Chomp Search Analytics for April:
Only one app title made the elite top 25 queries on iOS and Android. Searches for "concerts", "free photography apps", "chat" and three others make their first appearance on the top 25 lists.
Paid app downloads on Android decrease 2% but increase by 4% on iOS with peak growth occurring between the $0.99 - $3.99 price points. With 64% of all apps costing $0 on Android and only 36% on iOS, free apps continue to win the app download race.
Best in Category
With 18 given app categories in Android and 20 in iTunes, "Games" and "Entertainment" account for 46.5% of Android and 40.8% of iOS downloads. "Utilities" earns the #3 position while "news" loses a combine 3.3% of marketshare across both platforms.
