Today is a great day for Apple, as they begin to celebrate their WWDC 18, in which they will present novelties such as iOS 12. Today, precisely, we want to compare two of the most important application stores in the world , the Apple App Store and our Play Store.
As a curiosity, we wanted to see what appears in the search results when we put one of the most popular phones of each company. We already anticipate that the results are not very favorable for us , so be prepared for what’s coming.
As you know, in Android it is common for users to search for the name of a phone in the app store. This, allows you to find wallpapers, themes and icons of your favorite terminal , for the mobile phone they really own. In iOS, however, this does not happen, since we can not make any kind of customization beyond the wallpapers. We wanted to find two of the most popular phones in the world, in the case of iOS, the iPhone X, and in the case of Android, the Samsung Galaxy S8. We begin our search by entering the word iPhone X in the Google app store , the results speak for themselves.
Dozens, dozens and more dozens of apps, is what we find if we write iPhone X in the Play Store. Applications to simulate the notch, control center, wallpapers, launcher, lock screen, ringtones and notifications, camera, emojis, gestures … In Android we have applications that allow us to turn our phone into an iPhone , and the most curious thing is the great success they have.
This shows, unfortunately, that many users have an Android because they can not afford an iPhone , and that for this they configure their device looking for the maximum similarity with iOS. On the other hand, if we search on an iPhone “Samsung Galaxy S8”, the results are as follows.
The vacuum . As you can see, there are not even applications with the best backgrounds or sounds of the Samsung Galaxy S8. There is no sign of Samsung on the App Store , we have only found an application that has appeared in the results because the name appears in the description.
It’s funny how Apple has its ecosystem closed, and does not want any trace of Android in its app store . On the other hand, in Android we have no problem allowing developers to bring everything that iOS offers, something we have known for a long time and that is increasingly popular, especially with the arrival of the new iPhone.
