    I was expecting to see good list of top 20 apps but was faced with celebrity-magazine-like stuff...is this Hexus or have I mistakenly went to wrong internets ?

    well I guess what we can draw from this is something Apple should definetly use in marketing:

    The iPhone - It is sleek and does just a few things.

    I'm not surprised at all.

    Most people will just look at the 'top apps'. People don't want to spend hours trawling through apps that are unlikely to even work properly on their device.

    Finding apps on the device on Android is garbage. For all its sins, iTunes is a slick storefront.

    Re: News - Top 20 Android apps account for half of use

    im curious, does itunes marketplace come with free oral sex or like cookies? I haven never had issues finding a fun game or a useful app on android so i genuinely dont understand why people grumble about it.
