According to estimates from the Apple store still generates about 3.5 times sales store from Google. The difference, however, in all respects, gradually decreases. The main disadvantage for Google indicates this regard too wide number of devices compatible with the operating system. Developers of applications it must offer its products in many versions. Command or position of application development for it is in this respect considerably easier. Payment system Google is also more complicated than Apple.
