Dublin: If we take a look at the iPhone’s app store, it looks like Apple is using the Top Charts section of the iPhone’s app store to promote its own applications by listing the apps like Keynote, Numbers, Pages, iTunes U and iMovie in the higher positions than they would rank normally. When the Top Chart is viewed on iPhone, the above mentioned apps are showing up fraternized with the top 20 free apps on iPhone. But when it is viewed on the desktop version of the app store, either they are not present at all or they are in different positions.
Of course, this discrepancy could be related to a bug in the Apple’s App Store ranking algorithm. But if that is the case, it’s definitely a persistent one; it doesn’t look like it affects the rankings of other top applications (besides Apple’s), i.e. the Facebook Messenger app still resides at the top of the App Store followed by a new app called Acapella, then comes YouTube and then the Facebook.
Top Chart Listing Varies from Device to Device!
According to the initial findings of Apple, the apps were showing up in the random positions on the App Store app on iPhone. Sometimes, the apps would still remain on the Top Charts even if they were installed on the user’s device. This has been alerted to the company and it has been noticed that company’s own ranking data was not matching with that appearing in the App Store. But without an official confirmation, we can’t just chalk this up as Apple’s manual manipulation of Top Charts rankings. It could also be a bug.
