Have a read of the second link , you only need to read the first paragraph
Its quite obvious that Apple has higher quality control when it comes to the app market.
Higher quality control?
No, most apps on Apple's app store are one could consider trivially existent (meaning they are single purpose apps for stupid things like: farting, cocking a gun, and telling you lame jokes. I've tried some of these, they were quite... slow.
I owned the Iphone 4, it has it's shares of issues with App's. Specially for someone like me, who needs the phone to actually work real-time and not be lagged because I just exited angry birds and want to open safari. Or want to open most applications up and go right back to them without having to reload apps. Oh that new game you got? Enjoy mediocre FPS.
I want to be able to use windows live with as little bugs as possible, it's pretty much fouled up last I used it a few months ago. It would often exit my conversation, lagged like hell (some msg's weren't even received), wouldn't stay logged in while multitasking (obvious iOS issue which was supposed to be fixed).
As said before the App store has far longer then Android marketplace, however BOTH Android and App Store have their share of great apps, and pos apps. The thing with Android is, developers don't have to run software through anyone unlike with iOS having to run things through Apple (and consequently AT&T or Verizon). How many great apps have been rejected because of Apple or AT&T? Who knows.
Secondly most if not all app's that majority of people use have been ported or created on Android already. It's only a matter of time that Android will have every App Store application worth it's salt, and then some.
So yes for now the App Store is barely winning by a hair, in a few months to a year Android will take over.
