Apple adding suggested searches to iPhone App Store
Apple is rolling out a new feature to their App Store search that recommends search terms related to a user's current search. When a user searches for something in the store, a new bar will appear, just below the search bar on the results page, which will recommend related items. Users can scroll through the bar and tap an item to see results for the term. Following a suggested search will also yield more new suggestions. The feature also seems to be restricted, for now at least, to the App Store on the iPhone, according to MacStories:
Multiple suggestions can be selected in a single session: searching for “indie games”, for instance, displays suggestions for “action games”, which include “action RPG” into their own suggestions. The new suggestion bar doesn’t alter the way search results are displayed – Apple is still using a cards layout on the iPhone – and, for now, the feature doesn’t appear to be available on the App Store for iPad and desktop computers.
This feature should apparently be available to all users by the end of the week. Do you think that this will be a useful addition to the App Store? Tell us what you think below in the comments.
