Android's applications Intends to outrun Apple

Google Android will become the most popular application platform in the world for a few months, say reports, which will deal a blow to Apple.

android apps overtake apple

Although Apple has recently celebrated 50billion applications, users of the Google Android platform is now downloading more than 500 million applications per month.

The emergence of new devices from Samsung, Google app store, called Play, has leaned forward, despite the continuing lack of top-end applications and consumers still spend a smaller amount. There now 900million Android devices on the market compared to 600million Apple products.

    I have both. Apple App Store seems to have more quality apps whereas Google Play has more crap. I do love being able to use my Sony tablet to watch digital copies of my movies loaded on sd cards.

    I recently purchased my first smart phone and after due diligence opted for the Android OS. I probably would be just as happy with Apple. I am aware that updates to Android are "fractured" because individual handset makers may or may not get off their duffs and keep things current. Apple doesn't have that problem. Google seems to have leveraged its position better. It sees itself as a portal to a range of digital experiences rather than as a company that must make a profit on the handsets. It is hedging that bet a little as shown by the recent aquisition of Motorola. If Samsung gets too strong relative to other phone makers it could start throwing its weight around  and put the "squeeze" on Google's margins. Android is more interesting to me.

Wise Words

"When we finally presented it at the shareholders' meeting, everyone in the auditorium stood up and gave it a five-minute ovation. What was incredible to me was that I could see the Mac team in the first few rows. It was as though none of us could believe that we'd actually finished it. Everyone started crying."

The wrong direction

Although this is the first post about my four hour workweek, it did not just start for me. If you read the about me section, that was almost a year ago. So how did I do? Well, I've made some progress. By falling and standing up. By making decisions and ignoring some. After my breakdown I...

My worry about losing the Queen

My worry about losing the Queen would be that she would still be entitled to take money from the Crown Estates. I hope when negotiations are taking place after the referendum, that the SNP would not go soft on this and on a number of other matters, like being over generous with the entitlement...
