Developers do not stop improving the branded App Store service, for example, quite recently, standard iOS applications began to appear in search results. And now the App Store's search engine has been optimized to make it more tolerant of user errors.
The developers took into account that spellchecking for many people is overwhelming work, and therefore added the ability to search, even if the request is written with errors. In addition, the system now generally works much more correctly with complex names; long character combinations are no longer a hindrance either. There is no need to be afraid of typos or not knowing how to spell an unfamiliar name correctly - all errors are corrected automatically. And the search is carried out for keywords already corrected by the robot. Below is the difference in search results before and after the implementation of the new algorithm.
This can lead to unpleasant curiosities - there is a risk that the system will miss the desired application if its name really contains an error. For example, in the company SearchMan, collaborating with Applein this area, provide indicative statistics. The numbers indicate that for a number of queries, the search engine began to find fewer results and this has to be taken into account. On the other hand, the same experts from SearchMan point out that only 1-2% of users make serious mistakes when entering words into the search bar. At least popular applications, whose names are well-known, are easy to find.
