AppShopper search is useless

Often times I find myself reading about a game on the front page of TA, and wanting to add it to my AppShopper wish list. e.g., "The Fleet", which was reviewed today.

Unfortunately, the AppShopper search takes a query like "The Fleet" and just turns up every game containing either of those words in the title or description of the game. So, in essence, it returns a list of every game in the app store.

Sometimes I can work around this by using the name of the developer (which is usually something unique), but this obviously doesn't always work.

Any plans to fix/improve this? Even just support for advanced search boolean like quotes?
