Take the Iconfactory’s app Twitteriffic. Maheux ran a test wherein he typed “Twitter” into the App Store search field. His app Twitteriffic was astoundingly listed as the 100th result. Sacha Grief experienced even worse results than Maheux: “The iOS App Store is so broken that I couldn’t find an app even when searching for its full name.”
I wrote this back in 2009: Apple’s App Store Needs Librarians
What I wrote in 2009 is still true six years later.
What a disgrace.
I want to rub Apple’s nose in this. Jack Ma created Alibaba so that small businesses could prosper from the Internet.
Apple has maintained the App Store so that Apple can prosper from it.
What an even bigger disgrace.
