Did Apple changed its app store search algorithm again? On my iPad2 running iOS6, I am unable to search a game by its title unless the title is listed in the keywords. Although this does not seem to be the case with iPhone on iOS6. Two of my games now cannot be found using the game titles Anyone else experiencing this?

Me too. All I can do at the moment is to make update and sacrifice some keywords for title.

But even to change keywords will require an update submission... I wrote to apple, they claim that this has been reported to their engineering team and aim to get it fix in "6-8 weeks". That'll be around xmas season when ITC is down....
