Top 30 Android Apps

    While the ubiquitous media has surrounded the iOS app market (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), it's important to remember that Android is also making huge strides. Already more than 100,000 applications are available in the Android Market. Over the past six months, sales of Android devices have been excellent, with 32% of all new smartphones being purchased based on Android OS. The market is filled with various models from many manufacturers. Since the advent of the first devices, many have assumed that this OS will surpass Apple's OS in the coming years. And an important role in this should play applications for both platforms.

    IOS is still ahead. So far, there are not enough good Android apps that many people will actually use. Some iOS apps appear on Android and are no less popular. All this confirms the huge potential of the OS from Google, but it’s still too early to draw conclusions.
