The Android Market has made steady improvements since its introduction. But has it overtaken Apple's App Store? Let's find out
Since Google is a company that specializes in search, you'd expect a better job of app indexing than the Android Market actually provides. Searching for "Twitter" doesn't bring up the official Twitter app on the first page. Searching for "Angry Birds" returns 20 junky results (mostly ringtones, cheats, and knockoffs) before the actual game. The iPhone App Store, in contrast, has an almost telepathic sense of what you're looking for, backed by a powerful auto-suggest feature; and it gets generic searches right, as well.
Advantage: iPhone App Store
