Congratulations to Apple for making great progress in China. Baidu has the search and click-advertising market sown up in China, so Google will have trouble spreading and monetizing its brand there.

So many games that have been pirated a lot on android have become free so they can get your money through intrusive, over expensive essential micro transactions. There's nothing to be proud about.
Also a lot of the apps are merely tweaks for specific phones, really bad apps are filled with malware.

When it comes to iOS, the developer has to buy license from Apple. Developers in turn charge their customers.

How u can compare the two?..Android(play store) is used by multiple brands of phones where as IOS(app store) is only for the iphone.. iphone & app store is the best.. Apple is GENUINE
It's not surprising that Apple's app store generate more revenue because there are still lots of iphone owners who are compelled to buy paid apps because they have no choice whereas at Android play store, most apps are free.

Still there are more crap apps and malwares in Google Play Store simply because Google doesn't review applications manually and developers gets their apps live within an hour of submission and processing. Windows market place is clean and Microsoft review apps manually and if they found a crap app they would not let it be live. iOS app store is still better than Android because it has less crappy apps than Android.
Play store has now over 1M+ apps, so it's only logical.
But revenue wise nowhere near to app store!
Still Android rocks, lots of free apps \m/
i dont understand how u can compare the two..android(play sore) is used by multiple brands of phones where as i0s(app store) is only for the iphone
It's really obvious that the Playstore will eventually beat Itunes since Itunes only has one manufacturer and only has one brand that they carry, and that's Apple..The Android market vastly increased over the years because of its open source being used by a lot of manufacturers..But if the competition is leveled to only brands,Apple still has the lead..IMHO
