How to search Android Market for apps from Chomp?

Chomp.com after its acquisition by Apple removed searching from Android Market or Google Play on its site.

The Chomp page before the acquisition looked like this, [image unavailable]

Now after the Apple acquisition, the page looks like this, [image unavailable]

I hope its just temporary, or the page will soon redirect to Apple Market page, I don’t know.

I found a easy temporary hack that still lets you search the Android Market for apps using Chomp. This is just for the website, not sure about their app.

When you do a search for let’s say “restaurant guides” on Chomp.com now,, you can either search for iphone or ipad. The search page’s URL looks will look like,

http://chomp.com/q/search/restaurant%20guides?platform=iphone

To get the apps for Android from the Google Play of their last updated database, just change the platform=iphone to platform=android.

That’s it.

Chomp.com redirected to apple.com months ago, is now not loading, though its blog blog.chomp.com is live, last post dated February of 2012.
