Update (10 December 2016): Three months after I originally posted this article, and one month after “old” apps would be forced to update by Apple, there is only a single change—the removal of Elixr. However, it seems the creator, Mobelux, pulled this app from the Google Play store as well, indicating that the Apple clean-up had nothing to do with it.
Apple recently announced that they would be cleaning up the App Store. This is a long-awaited move that should help resolve one of my gripes about App Store. While this clean up is nice, it’s only the first step in fixing App Store search. I thought I would document a search I routinely run to discover new apps for Untappd (or, perhaps more honestly, to gauge the popularity of Tappd That). This cleanup process should remove a number of the top 25 results, but only a handful are actually relevant to the search term in the first place.
