    I think it's good that the App Store is very strict. Apple would look bad if the App Store was full of crappy apps or poorly coded apps.

    I prefer Apple's method (the App Store), and this article re-enforces my opinion on this.

    It's sorta like the Mac vs PC debate. Each has is pros and cons, but neither is truly better. It's all preference (although a certain side always tries to say it's undeniably better).

    I learned a few things from this, interesting read. I have to say that I prefer Apples App Store, although there are still a lot of spam apps.

    I like 'em both. App Store for their poilicys, and Android Marked for open minded controlling of accepting apps.

    I like both. Apple is a bit too restrictive sometimes, as said on a front page link in the Rock Store. Sucks for the developers on the Android Market though, for the reason of instant returns and... the thing that is zero tolerance on this forum. I hate Android Markets spam apps though.

    I like Apple for keeping spam out of their App Store and still having hundreds of thousands of apps, but unfortunately they are flooding our apps with advertisements. I also like App Store's simplicity and easy use.

    I have a few things I'd like to correct when I'm on my computer, but it should be noted that Googles approval process isn't one. They let anything and anyone in. I like it, others don't.

    It's all opinion.
