    Just do a search for "flashlight" on iTunes.
    $4.99 white screens, and 100s of them
    Now search for "flashlight" on the Android Market.
    About 50 crappy bright screens, but they're free, and the awesome camera flash for free as well! Just sayin, :)
    My friend dropped his pen on the bus and used a $0.99 white screen to look for it. I turned on the free MotoTorch and it lit up the entire back of the bus.

    I agree there are way to many "fluff" apps in both markets. 90% of them all are not worth the time it takes to scroll past them

    No offense but the Android Market is full of just as much crap as the iMarket or WTF they call it.

    There is more money to be made in the apple app market...there are more iphone users than droid users, and if they are buying apple products at a premium price, i think they will probably also be more willing to spend money on apps. So, developers are more motivated to develop for apple.

    Droids aren't exactly cheap either.

    To answer the main question as to why more app store apps than market apps. Iphone had 2 years by itself before the market started up. That's a lot of lead time. Plus iphone is a proven seller, meaning proven revenue for devs. The market will catch up, devs are prefering the openness of it over apple.

    Iphone had a head-start and Apple released a SDK and marketed it pretty nicely to encourage development.
