Chinese Upset with Apple Over Strange Search Results

Though Apple has already announced that it will be making its products more China-friendly, many Chinese are reporting today that App Store’s search results are not functioning properly. “Apple really does not understand Chinese,” says Nixianle, CEO of Fei Lei.

Weibo users are now saying that many of the search results are not bringing up the most relevant apps. For instance, one game entitled “World War II Storm Raiders,”shows up as the sixth result when its four-character name is inputted in App Store.

Yet most upsetting and baffling of all for the reporters, is that searching for Weibo will instead bring up Weixin (WeChat) as the first search result, as shown below.

Heavens!
