Dissimilarities Between App Store and Google Play
In this flux of internet, Apple and Android are the well-known names as well as competitors, let me present you the Apple’s introduction. Apple Inc. is an American electronic company who is manufacturer of lots of products like iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac and many more. Due to extra ordinary features Apple get incredible success, basically Apple Inc. is a multinational of American corporation that designs and sells consumer electronics, computer software, and personal computers. The operating system which is running in most of the devices is the iOS and the latest version of this operating system is iOS 5.1.1. Apple has newly released its next generation iPad named the new iPad, and this device get wonderful success in the market due to amazing features. And the latest smartphone is he iPhone 4S this smartphone was released in October 2011 and now all and sundry is expecting for the next generation iPhone. That was an introduction about Apple.
Basically Android is an operating system by the Google, and it’s also running in lots of devices and smartphones, Google has acquired this operating system in 2005, Android distribution in 2007 was announced with the founding of the Open Handset Alliance. Google is able enough to provide the amazing features for its users and it’s the main reason behind the success of this operating system. The well-known companies who are using Android are HTC, Motorola, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson and lots of more, the current version of this operating system is the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) and Google is also working on the upcoming version that is also known as Android Jelly Beans.
That’s the short introduction about the both extremes, there are also lots of thing to make the Android and Apple device more useful and Apps are also one of them. Both companies are also providing the apps to have the wonderful user experience. If you are a user of Android device you can get apps from the Google Play store (that was also known as Android Market). If you are using the Apple device you need to head to App Store to get the Apps for the device. The purpose behind both Google Play and App Store is similar but there is also some different between both of them and today in this post I’ll present you the difference between Google Play and App Store in the interesting way.
Difference in Aspect of developers
As I have explained above that Google’s Android OS has got incredible success but the actual facts are not this. In the view of reality the number of Android users is more than Apple device users, but the developers like to work for the Apple. The reason behind this as I have observed that Apple is a bran for those people who have a high status but the Android devices are cheap in relation to Apple. Developers start work for Apple because every iOS device user must like to use the apps, and in this way a developer’s apps come into use before Android. So, developers like to work for the Apple. On the other hand if you want to get the membership as a developer for App Store you need to pay $99, and similarly if you want to get the membership of Google Play you just need to pay the $25.
Difference in Aspect of Apps
There is a large range of the apps is available on the both App Store and Google Play Store there are also lots of apps that can make your device more useful than before. But now I am going to share with you some interesting information for this purpose, because according to the latest report by the AppBrain that there are 430,000 apps available in the Google Play store and from them 311,000 apps are available for free. In the percentage there are almost 72% of apps in the Play store for free. Similarly if we talk about the App Store apps there are 615,000 apps available and from them 287,000 apps are free which roughly translates to only 46% of free apps and the smallest amount price of an app in the App Store is $2.
Apps Categories and Page Design
Now I am going to share my personal views with you about the App Store and Google Play Store, if we talk about the Apps Categories on both App Store and Google Play Store. The Categories of the both are almost same but the presentation of Google Play Store is more effective, and the plus point is Google Play Store has also presented the “Top Paid, Top free, Top grossing, Top new paid, Top new free. In the aspect of apps I like the way of Google Play Store but I found the Apple’s App Store easy to understand. If we talk about the Page Design I like the App Store the design is simple and easy to understand that every person can easily get the desired apps.
To read the above detail we can say that the purpose behind both App Store and Google Play Store is one but the difference is also important. Google has tried to present a new and creative thing, it’s not possible to copy the all look and feel of Apple. It was just a try to present you the interesting information about both, if you like this then share your comments below…
