The Android Market has made steady improvements since its introduction. But has it overtaken Apple's App Store? Let's find out

But despite recent tweaks to the Android Market's look and feel, it still doesn't equal the iPhone App Store. Apple's storefront is easier to browse and has a wider selection of apps. When you set aside the open versus closed debate, which has more to do with the Android and iOS platforms as a whole than with their respective app marketplaces, Apple shines.
Winner: iPhone App Store
