Chomp gets a bite of Apple

Former Sandbox members Chomp – an App Search Engine was acquired today by Apple  for what looks to be around $50m.

Chomp, based in San Francisco, and at Sandbox Suites from October 2009 till last February – is the developer of a search engine that helps users find mobile apps based on their functions, and not just their name, according to their site. Chomp, Inc. is the only company to enable app search based on what an app actually does. One billion apps are being downloaded every month, and iTunes is up to 550,000 unique apps. A smart buy for apple and a right step for Chomp, we’re looking forward to seeing what the future holds for this team of awesome Aussies!

Chomp CEO Ben Keighran and CTO and co-founder Cathy Edwards are already working at Apple. Keighran joins iTunes Marketing and Edwards is now a Senior iTunes Engineer.

We’d like to send out our congratulations to our former sandboxers and wish them the best of luck at Apple and in all their future endeavors.
