98% of apps on Android are 30 launchers and their themes, wallpaper, livewallpapers, task killers, battery saving apps, and antivirus apps. Then you add to app compatibility or force closes. There aren't much at all. Take a look at the App Store or appshopper.com and you'll see that Android is so far behind.
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2011I totally agree with you,especially owning both devices.
Android market is a shit hole comp... moreExactly, everyone who own both iOS device and android device knows that android market is big joke compared to appstore, but let android fans believe what they want :)
it surprise me again and again how PRO those appstore apps looks/feels. It feels like every dev has their own very good graphic designers. Apps look's very good. Nothing like those amateur looking android apps (most of them).
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2011Obviously AppStore sells more apps than Android market. There was article on that in Business ... moreThey are usually preloaded with "light" versions.
I've got an E5, Joiku Hotspot is on there free but you can't secure it with a password, if you want to secure it you have to pay 9€ for the premium version.
A secured WiFi hotspot is built into my iPhone.
Nokia maps isn't so good, it takes forever to get a lock.

They're on different leagues my friend! Now I understand why people love iPhone. It's a smartphone with great specs and yet easy to uses. Where with androids you need to use your brain IF you want to use it functionalities optimally.
Of course, it makes sense. You bought the most expensive mobile phone in the market so you surely must have another dollar or two to purchase apps.
Android users want developers to be slaves who do work for them for nothing.
Google don't care, they make money off ads.
I don't mind paying extra to get ad free Apps and to support App developers.
Then Android users wonder why all the best Apps show up on iOS first, it's not rocket science developers have to eat and pay the rent like everybody else.
Yeah, I own android but a little bit disappointed with android market. It's full of free apps but most of them are like trashy apps. But still, won't change to iPhone. iPhone can't change ROMs, can't change Kernels, less modifiable.. Androids are only for smart people if you want to unlock their full potentials.
Jack, 21 Dec 2011Lol, i am using Samsung GS2 and iphone4, frankly im soo dissapointed with Android Market. too ... moreI totally agree with you,especially owning both devices.
Android market is a shit hole compared to Apple's
For example,i use iPhone for business the most, and my favorite App is PDF reader which i use for bunch of documents,etc,easy Wi-fi transfer from my desktop to my iPhone,now on
Android market i have Adobe reader free version,but can't do much with it,and for full version they want $9.99 while my iPhone's i got it for free.
That's the whole magic.
Apple's apps are useable,and good apps always come to Apple store first,while Android are not that great,crash,many bugs,spams,advertising,etc
Android will never catch Apple

Can you give me example? i hear lot of talking about that, i hadn't buy any app which some other phone has out of the box, they are free if there's those kind of apps.
But yes i'm waiting couple of examples.
Also appstore has atleast 200 000 free apps. so that's a lot of free stuff :)
of course they're gonna make more revenue if youll buy the apps from apple...that only means apple is ripping you off when you can get it in android market for free...WHY DONT YOU THINK DISTIMO...and who is DISTIMO???
what a huge pile of bull sh1t. Only morons will actually fall head first for this crappy article made by some crappy company nobody has ever heard of.
And to top the whole propagannda and statistical lie, it's only top 200 apps.
Well if i take top 17 apps maybe android will bee selling 86 times more than apple. Of maybe if i take top 34 apps apple and android will be even.
What a bunch of bull sh1t.
Compare the whole market or dont compare.
The people who did this idiotic research are obviously retards cause they cant count past 200. Its not like the business numbers are top secret. Btw, android market reached 1 billion downloads. How much does apple store have ?
the profit apple make come from the apple user. It's better to go to Android then
When you pay more for what others get for free or pay less than you, you consider yourself very smart. Apple guys are geniuses. Their clients exactly the opposite.
"This why we iOS users get all the good stuffs for our devices. Devs like us and iOS, because they can make money with their hardwork."

I don't understand what's your point here. Maybe they like Android more than ios and that's why they decide to collect fares from its users. HAHA.
No wonder. I bet over 70 % of the apps are paid. Android Market has a lot of free apps. And that's good.
Another pathetic survey just proves that Apple are a bunch of greedy gimps. Most Android apps are free.
