iPhone Doesn't Have More Apps than Android
That is right. Think twice before you believe that there is more apps for iPhone than for Android smartphones.
It is true that the App Store has more apps than the Android market. No argument there. (at least for now)
But, do you know that most of the apps on the app store are games? So, let's say each game you can play on your iPhone is an Application and needs to be downloaded to your iPhone.
Don't get me wrong, I love the iPhone and I own one. But for you to be able to choose you should know the facts, and this fact helped me decide to purchase a Nexus One (Android) instead of another iPhone.
With the Android 2.2 Operating System you have full Flash player. This means you can open any flash page or application. This means that the whole world of flash on the web is open to you. (in oposition to the iPhone)
Think of websites like MiniClip. How many flash games are there? How many websites like MiniClip are there? Can you have an idea of how many free flash games are available online? I would say more than there are applications for the iPhone.
What is even better is that you don't have to download them...you can just play them as you do on your computer. You can just keep on your mobile what is more important and go online to play a game everytime you feel like it.
So, if we count each flash game that is available online as one Application...Who has more Apps? iPhone or Android?
Please, do not choose a mobile phone based only on this. Just use this as an answer to the argument that the Android Market is smaller than the App Store.
