iOS app search engine definitions

To have chrome search for iOS apps from the url bar by typing "iapp app-name", add a search engine definition (Command-, type "search", click "Manage search engines", scroll to the bottom of the list and add a new entry) like this one:

iOS apps     iapp     https://www.google.com/search?q=inurl%3Ahttps%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2F%20%s

(after tweaking "us" to whatever country code your apps come from)

It would be neat if the iOS app store had its own search page somewhere on the web so we didn't have to rely on Google's rather poor rendition of the search results, but I haven't found one.

The more json minded of you might also add an accompanying "iappjs" version, for the heck of it:

iOS apps json     iappjs     https://itunes.apple.com/search?country=us&media=software&limit=200&term=%s
