It seems Apple is to clamp down on spammy App names in it's search, and from now on they will only be limited to 50-characters.

Additionally, it has said that abandoned, or Apps that don't meet current guidelines, will be reviewed and developers notified. These problematic Apps will be removed from the App Store.

I will appreciate this, even Search Engines have there "Title Limit".

This is a much needed thing, clearing the App store of abandoned apps. It will get developers to dust off the apps and do some nice improvements or even small changes.
