Following its late February acquisition of app search and discovery firm Chomp, Apple has now killed off Chomp's Android services.
The move was reported late yesterday by a MacRumors reader who noticed that the Chomp app for Android had ceased functioning on his device, and GigaOM confirms that Chomp has also removed Android search functionality from the Chomp website.
Apple reportedly paid about $50 million for Chomp, which also had a deal with Verizon to power its Android app search tools. That agreement will presumably be ending as Chomp completes its integration into Apple and focuses all of its attention on iOS.
