I tried to keep my post aimed towards the stores though and I just think that the App Store is better. YMMV and I respect that.
You proclaim that the Apple App Store is 500x better then Android market place, yet you say YMMV?
That's like saying I know factually that 2+2=4 but YMMV. Aka your not sure.
First of, it's been mentioned already the Apple App Store still has a lead over the Android market, however that doesn't mean the lead is 500x. It's honestly closing, that much can be seen by many reviewers of phones. The common apps usually are already shared by android market place and apple app store, all that follows are niche items.
I choose an Iphone 4 as my phone because of the screen and sound quality, I never bothered to care for the "Apps", after all I don't want a highly optimized farting app. I want my critical apps for Text, chat, email, and others. I need a good screen to preview pics for work, screen through websites, and read articles/others. I need good sound quality because I don't want to carry an MP3 either.
Guess what? I don't have an Iphone 4 anymore, I found it rather dull and incomplete. Most of it's app's are repeats, under different developers. Most apps are also pretty much viral apps.
Now I just rock a Motorola Atrix, so far so good.
