Apple TV App Store now removes installed apps from Top Charts

Apple has tweaked its TV App Store algorithm to hide apps already installed on the device. After a brief scare when their new app went missing from the Top Charts in Germany, app designer Equinux figured out that the update eliminates apps that users already have from app store lists, presumably to provide more visibility for lesser-known apps and keep customers from having to trudge past all the apps they already have while seeking out new ones.

A similar update hasn’t appeared in the iOS App Store yet, so it’s possible the change will be exclusive to tvOS or Apple is testing the change on the smaller platform before rolling it out to its larger storefront. [via 9to5Mac]
