I won't dispute the numbers because it is all guesswork, but come on,
'quality, not quantity that counts'? Apple controls what goes into the
app store, Android is OPEN, do you really think there won't be plenty of
crappy apps in there?

One look at the just released Linux Ubuntu 10.04 is all it takes
to see the "quality" applications that the OSS world is known for.

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa!

Just like with Linux, the Android is going to be like the wild,
wild west with 100's of different varieties that are all different
enough as to make them incompatible with each other.

Linux users, aka freetards, call it choice.
Most people call it fragmentation and confusion.

Too many Indians and not enough chiefs.

And another post goes over you head!

The point was that with an OPEN system like Android, there will be
plenty of crappy apps, possibly more than what is available for the
iPad/iPhone/Touch. With a controlled environment it is possible to
reduce that a bit.

Let's face it, every OS has shitty apps for it and no few of stupid
ones, what about Android is going to prevent or even reduce the number?
The answer, not a damn thing.

Alas this could well be something very bad. All apps (or the installer)
presents a list of access points the app will use e.g "Can cost you
money and allow calls" or "access net" or "access contacts" etc etc. I
wonder how many people really read that or, horrors, download the "open
and free" code to inspect it for malware before allowing it to be
installed? Less than a tenth a percent I would suggest.

sure, it's "possible." it's also possible that there will be more
quality apps for android. >:P

the good thing is, the users get to decide if an app is crap, and not
apple (as apple obviously blocks quality apps (google voice for
example), and as previously mentioned, apple lets through some pretty
crappy ones).

But how much safety is there in that approach? With Apple the odds of a
piece of malware getting on the app store is extremely low, with an open
system, not so much.

yup, being free to do more things means that you may be more at risk.
i'm ok with that. not just when it comes to software. ;D

but doesn't an overly restrictive app approval process lead to more
people jailbreaking their iphones so they can install any apps,
removing the security benefit? :D

but i've never even had pc malware, and i don't download banking
software from random people (the only suspected malware for android
(all published by one person)), so i think i'm pretty ok in
general. ;D but strangely enough, it's the iphone that conditioned
people to get apps for every little thing, including things which can
be done directly on your bank's website. :D

Sorta makes you think of the freeware crappola that has been out there
for eons in the Windows world.
