On Friday, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) upgraded the App Store for iOS 6 beta with catchy layout and search results updates apparently inspired by “Chomp,” the app search engine purchased by Apple (AAPL) in the start of this year.
The new App Store made accessible to developers operating on the upcoming iOS 6 sports a revamped look formed on app cards or tiles instead of the list view observed in iOS 5.
Apple seems to be applying some of the features purchased from its recent acquisition of app search engine Chomp, which had a just alike tile interface. Although Apple is busy is modifying the software and might come up with much different interface than observed now.
