App count is pointless. Pick all royalty free jpegs on the internet and for each one generate a "$jpeg wallpaper app" and "$jpeg clock app" etc. In a few hours, you can add many millions apps, and zero value, to the app store that way. There's a lot of this and other kind of duplicated junk.
Every application in the App Store its now the best, but in iOS it looks and feels way better than the same application in other Ecosystem. you can't deny that...
Look people, every store there always have same app in different name!!!
The important is it's free!!!
If u want better version the pay!!!!
it is not about the quantity, its about the quality of the apps and as far as i know apps from app store are a lot better compared to all other stores...
- I _only_ use free apps, therefore their ratio to the total number is quite important for me.
- I'm the first to admit that I'm not (yet) using the Android appstore, but in my experience with other stores, when one is looking for a particular type of app, one's lucky to find 3...5 of them (and often none of those is suitable in the end) in spite of there being a total of tens or hundreds of thousands of apps - links to books or webpages packaged as "apps" do not an app make, sorry.
Android Market has more shit than the AppStore. They make shit just to increase their app count.
Im an android (HTC Desire HD) and iOS (iP4) user... in my experience most of the free apps in android are just garbage... and most of them are a duplicate of another app with a different name... i think thats one thing good about iOS they filter apps thats really worth downloading or not... buts still there are few in iOS that are just rubbish...
most are useless apps in android.. only few are interesting.... so dont think this a good signal unless they make more chalenge apps

Apple will suck your wallet dry for sure.. More and more phone user changing to Android, more and more developer coming, what can you expect an OS could be since it initial release just only 2 and half year (21 October 2008)..would you mind to tell us since when IOS released? It's already a shame the user surpassed IOS and now the market surpassed app store..Apple fanboy and steve jobs just the same, never commit the failure and bunch of liar..what you gonna do to someone who better than you? sue them? haha
Nikotiko, 28 Apr 2011Ovi Store still has the most USEFULL apps.OVI store copying apps from app store and Android market through QT?!!! wake up
Oz, 28 Apr 2011Personally I think WP7 market place and BB app world have the right idea......ie not posting c... moreOk does WM and BB offer that quailty apps like App store do and Android market with useful Apps?!
I love to argue, 28 Apr 2011Funny joke, dude.I agree with that guy. Nokia fans really find their apps useful specially Opera since the default browser is pathetic and useless on S^3 devices.
Personally I think WP7 market place and BB app world have the right idea......ie not posting crap. Android market place and Apple app store are awful and are just cluttered with tat and BS. Who cares about the number of sh*t, cause thats what most of said apps on both iOS and Android are.

cry apple fan boys with your master steve jobs a devil. i was so bounded with my iPhone 3gs now as i switched to android 2.3 im completely enjoying all time i pay zero on apps and games with better quality and better OS then 90s old style iOS, android 2.1 is much better then IOS 4 in any point 2.2 froyo is far better then IOS believe me just leave worshiping of that devil steve jobs. there is no point to compare Droid with ios. 'MIGHTY ANDROID'
free apps only count in numbers to show us they have hundred thousands of free apps,the truth is it is just free but only few are very useful and worth to download
