In other news, A report from TC yesterday stated that Apple recently implemented updates to its App Store's search engine to allow for more accurate search when typos and misspelled queries took place. This update is said to also work in the instance of a user using a space vs not using one or vice versa.
"For example, those looking for the highly ranked “QuizUp” game wouldn’t have found it before if they had typed in “Quiz Up” with a space. Now it appears."
The result (obviously) will lead to better discoverability for Apps in Apple's App Store. According to the report the changes have been rolling out over the last few weeks.
