Apple Thinks One Search Result Per Page Is Good

App Store IconWhile Bing is showing over ten search results on a page and Google users are complaining that Google is sometimes showing only seven results on a page, Apple decides to go with one search result per page.

As a developer of iPhone apps, I find this pretty upsetting. There are apps we sell that simply won't be seen anymore because of this change. In the past, Apple showed a listing of apps, now they show one app per search page. Here are screen shots:

Now, the iPad App Search results are better, not great, but better:

iOS 6 App Search

These new search results came with the iOS 6 upgrade. I am honestly not sure who at Apple felt this was a good idea?

How does this help developers?

How does this help app searchers?

What am I missing? It just might look cool?
