Guess that's a matter of personal preference. I rather like having all my app "purchases" in one centralized location. I don't want to spend the time searching multiple app markets trying to find what I'm looking for. Just not interested in that at all. I will happily pay a couple bucks for a well designed app. I don't mind it at all.
I've had my iPhone for over 18 months now and have downloaded and tried just under 700 apps and a couple hundred on my iPad. I couldn't believe the number when I saw it. Not all were paid for of course, but that's a significant number I think. Point is they're all located in ONE place.

I didn't say there are no good Android apps in the marketplace, only there are more in the App Store, which I've learned from reading posts from other users here. And my theory seems to validate that statement.
I wish you wouldnt use the whole custom ROM argument, because iDevices can be jailbroken with less effort with the same results. And each is something a vast majority of users are simply not interested, myself included. I've jailbroken all of my iDevices at one point or another and while it's all wizz-bang fun at first, the device never feels "right" afterwards, something more jailbreakers can attest to. To each his own.Edited by ForumViewer - 6/13/11 at 12:52pm
