This article, that I skimmed, sent me over to the Android Niceties Tumblr, basically a site showing you screenshots of Android apps they think are beautiful. I guess this could easily be a post where you expect me to say “not even close to iOS”, but that’s not the case. There’s some really great looking apps collected here.
I’d even say this is an easier way to find good Android apps.
As has been noted by others before, the design divide between iOS and Android has closed — now the question is the revenue divide. iOS developers still make substantially more money on average, so the question for me is whether that can change before the developers investing in good design give up on the platform.
At some point you have to make money to recoup the time input. I just don’t see ads cutting it, so will the paid Android app market mature, and uh, start paying?
