The Android Market has made steady improvements since its introduction. But has it overtaken Apple's App Store? Let's find out
The Android Market allows you to mark user reviews as helpful or unhelpful, but it squanders this system by displaying all reviews chronologically. I've also noticed obvious spam, such as ads for DroidSingles.info, among the reviews for several apps. The iPhone App Store's review system isn't much different, but it shows reviews only for the app's latest update, so you don't have to contend with outdated feedback. The App Store also lists the number of reviews an app's rating is based on, which gives you some sense of whether a five-star average is bogus or legit.
Advantage: iPhone App Store
