A SearchLink MAS stopgap

If you use SearchLink at all, you’ve probably noticed that the Mac App Store searches have stopped working. This happened the day iOS 7 came out, and it still hasn’t resolved. iTunes App Store links are functioning better, but the MAS returns no results. In order to be able to continue using the utter convenience that is SearchLink, I’ve switched (!mas) searches to use a Google site search instead. This is a temporary stopgap, and I’ll switch back to using the iTunes Search API once it can handle it again.

Let me know if it doesn’t work for you. You can find more info on SearchLink on the project page. If you’re updating, remember to swap in your iTunes and Amazon affiliate codes as needed.
