It's really funny! Because although android has much more free apps but people still prefer ... morethe research is based on the revenues not downloads !
and besides, with apple you're forced to use the app store, while with android you're not, and many people don't ever use android market !
watch this space. Apple might be rulling this time in terms of revenue but in 5 years time apple will be where to be found in the rae of consumers getting the best for their money.
I'll rather buy a bottle of milk in Asda 50p cheaper than to buy in M&S. So you tell me who is wisser hear. Iphone fanboys are just deluded. Apple is wisser than u lot. apple might have the highest revenue but android have the highest turnovers and thats a marketing fact. Thats why android are celebrating billions of downloads everyday. The more people want to own an android phone. Thats why more people shop in asda than in marks and spencer. M&S might have the brand and more revenue but Asda rules in turnover and business growth and sustainability in the long term.

The reason is simple, quality wins over quantity! Android is trying to best all others even if this was over quality.
The same goes to samsung! They produce phones like crazy but their quality is a joke compared to Sony or even HTC.
Finally, some may argue here that apple store still has more apps than android, however, the useful apps you can find in apple's store are far more than you can find on android.
I am an android user, but I'm feeling sick of constantly fooling my self that android is better! The reason I stick with android is because it's open and not strict as apple, but believe me when it comes to apps, I know apple crushes android hands down!
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2011Well in App Store, all there really is is just 9000 variations of Angry Birds...Angry birds is so lame FARM FRENZY is way better
ALonZo, 22 Dec 2011Wow so many angry Android fans, especially the one below who has probably lost a night's sleep... moreNo, Apple is not a better device if you compare with top-end Android and also, the revenue does not say that the OS is stable. But why App store have more profit then? It is easy, so u iPhone fanboyz and also Android fanboyz listen up carefully. Revenue means the profit they receive from people buying apps legally...mark it LEGALLY. So, it does say which OS is better or which devices is better. iOS in iPhone is close system, so, u need to purchase to install apps and you as a buyer cant simply install things into your iPhone, u need to get through the Apps store (unless u jailbreak, which still few in numbers). So that is why, majority of apps found in iPhone are paid apps bought legally from the Apps store..so it generate revenue for Apple and the devlper. While for Android case, which is Open Source, everyhing can be installed easily either it is original apps or pirated version, just install it as easy as 123. So, this in return shows that not majority of apps found in Android devices are paid or downloaded LEGALLY..most are actually pirated version. U can ask your friend using Android about it, and they will happily says that they get the paid apps for free from some pirated website. So, this in return gives less revenue to Android market.
its no shock apple have more income on app you have to pay for most of them , why would you pay 69p for angry birds on apple when its free on android, there are thousands of apps on android that are free unlike apple who like to rip off there customeres charging crazy prices for a phone then charging for a app its better to go android better range of phones that ar just as good or even better than apple and at cheeper prices
hehe,it's a normal thing that in china the number of iphone is higher coz of the fake stuffsssss..hehe.more than half of the iphone here are fake
Wow so many angry Android fans, especially the one below who has probably lost a night's sleep due being angry over this article lol
Now let's be fair, Android do offer plenty of apps and yes many free ones. But there are so many free thousand free apps in App Store too, as well as paid ones. But one thing is for sure is that because the iPhone has the more stable OS, plus in my opinion the iPhone being the better device, a lot of the premium apps just have that better feel to it. I've owned both Android and the iPhone, those claiming the iPhone is junk or overrated are seriously kidding themselves ;)
**** you all. Android sux. I still remember my first G1 T-mobile phone working with android & how they copied everything from iOS.
Apple AppStore makes 6x more revenue than Android Market and 20X more quality apps than Android.
just jailbreak the iPhone n then u'll know that android market is nothing. u'll get most of paid iOS apps/games instantly free. Im using iPhone 4 n Android Samsung Galaxy S. both of them are great device. but iphone is still my favorit
Hahaha....Of course App store is wining, every single app from it is PAID. Android on the other hand gives many of the most popular apps for FREE. For us, consumers, the last on this list is the best :D
(not a fanboy, just saying the facts)
This article goes along with the way i see things. Most people think apple is better because they have "exclusive apps" when in reality they made them first for apple because they sell more, then eventually they go to android for free. I would rather wait and save money for apps i'm not even gonna use anyway.
