Apple kills Chomp for Android

Apple (s AAPL) acquired app discovery service Chomp earlier this year, betting that it would help make app discovery easier and better on its iTunes Appstore. The casualty of that acquisition is the Chomp for Android (s goog) app which seems to have been discontinued. It is hard to figure out what is going to happen to Chomp’s deal with Verizon (s vz). Anyway, the upside of Chomp for Android being put out to pasture is that it means less competition for rival app discovery platforms such as AppsFire and others, who can work with carriers for better app discovery on their Android stores. before the acqusition: today:
