Android’s Market Share

I switched over to Android earlier this year and have fallen in love with the experience. It’s sad, but this is no overstatement. But this post isn’t about all that. I read recently that Android is approaching 50% of the market share for smartphones, yet it still remains well behind in applications development for its marketplace. While I see this as an amazing chance to develop Android-based applications, I can’t help but feel that critics are overly critical about this fact. To me, it seems it will only be a matter of time before app development for Android surpasses Apple if Android continues to dominate the OS market share as they currently do. Then again, maybe there’s something in the psychology of Apple users that make them more likely to purchase apps. I can’t help but wonder if it’s only to make Apple a more prosperous company. But who knows.
