Android Market vs. Apple App Store

Nearly every day, I come across articles like this stating how one mobile application store has hit some crazy number of app downloads or how they now have thousands of new apps available. Hey, you know something? Awesome news. Just one problem – where’s the metric for quality applications?

We know that Apple has tight ropes around its participating developers and how those mobile products are allowed to look. While, on the flip side, we hear of Android providing more product development freedom at a cost of collective app quality. But honestly, more than anything, I think people just want things to work well. Whichever mobile platform can provide this experience wins in my book. It’s really that simple.

Not that 50 ways to do the same thing isn’t just awesome, but I’d take one app that works as advertised any day of the week over “the most downloaded.” Just my own two cents.
