So what does it offer? It’ll be heavily geared towards selling the apps and games that advertise on the social networking site and bring in the most money for them. Fans of Cityville and Farmville which are already hugely popular on the site will be happy to hear that they feature on the app store and as well as this for the first time developers will be able to sell their apps to users via the social networking site. Just like Apple and Google the apps will be rated by users to avoid any potential spam.
The original app store has certainly learned from his past mistakes but now runs a fairly smooth operated ship. You can use the app store to download straight to your iPad, iPhone, iPod or Apple TV. As the most profitable platform for app developers you’ll also find more app choice on Apple than any of its competitors. It’s downfall? Most of the apps are targeted at Apple products meaning if you use a Windows or Android devise your options are slightly limited.
While the premise of the Google app store is very similar to its Apple based rival there are a few key differences. The main one being that provided that you’re logged in using your Google account then you’re able to install any app straight from the web interface. If you’re using an Android phone you can also select one of your registered devices to download the app too.
So which one’s best? It’s open for debate and obviously we need to wait for Facebook’s to fully launch before we rule it out but as much as it’s still learning to cater to all audiences it’s hard to argue with Apple’s app store which at the moment still can’t be fended off my any of its competitors.
