The Android platform has lots of software stores in addition to Google’s own Android Market, including GetJar and Amazon. The Ovum report noted that Apple “can’t compete with such diversity, but still leads in the value of its apps.”
If you think the App Store is full of junk you should take a look to the Android store.
“Android apps are living in the Wild West without a sheriff,” Howe wrote. “With five other major mobile OSs competing for consumer dollars, Google can’t afford to simply let pirates kill app developers’ businesses. They need to foster some law and order or developers will flee to other platforms and Android will lose customers”
Interesting, some developers actually ask for a more “close” Android store.
