The Android Market has made steady improvements since its introduction. But has it overtaken Apple's App Store? Let's find out
The App Store Website has a Web landing page for every app in the store, with a description, version notes, user reviews, screenshots, pricing, and system requirements. The Android Market Website's limited app showcase looks lazy by comparison. Fortunately, other Websites such as AppBrain (pictured at left, where the Android Market screen usually appears in this slideshow) can post QR codes that provide a direct link to the Android Market when scanned by the phone. The App Store Website links only to iTunes software, which is best avoided whenever possible.
