iOS App Store Top Charts Now Display 150 Results, Down From 300 [iOS Blog]

May 28, 2014 § Leave a comment

Apple has changed the number of apps displayed in the “Top Charts” section of the iOS App Store, reports TechCrunch. Rather than displaying the top 300 apps in a given section, only the top 150 apps are displayed on the Paid, Free, and Top Grossing charts.

The change was implemented several days ago and has largely gone under the radar, but it does leave half as many apps available for discovery via the Top Charts, a fairly significant change. Apple’s desktop iTunes App Store continues to display the top 200 apps.

While it is unclear why the iOS App Store is now displaying fewer apps in its Top Charts, the shift follows an earlier change to the App Store rankings designed to promote better app discovery.

According to Appsfire CEO Ouriel Ohayon, the change will not impact developers in as the bottom Top Chart listings did not have a significant impact on app downloads.
