When the App Store first launched, it was really a first-of-its-kind type of platform. Over a decade later, the App Store’s primary competitor, the Google Play Store, has basically caught up in terms of overall user experience. But there are still some key differences.
While there may be fewer types of apps on the App Store, the apps on Apple’s platform are generally higher-quality. That’s because they go through a much more stringent review process. Not only that, but many startups and developers choose to release apps on iOS first, before adding an Android version down the road.
