I want you to discard my last blog post. I wish I knew how to delete blogs. Anyway, I've done some more research, and got more experience with all the phones mentioned in this debate and here is my final verdict. For each category, being the winner gives you 5 points, being runner up gives you 3 points, and being the loser gives you 1 point.
In terms of apps it's getting down to the wire lately. The Android is rapidly gaining on the current app leader, iPhone. And maybe in a couple years this category will be completely different. But for now this is where it stands. In terms of sheer quantity of apps, iPhone currently has 750,000 apps, Android has 600,000 apps and Blackberry has 1000-3000 apps. So for the amount of apps, the iPhone is still in the lead by about 150,000 apps. But it's not all about quantity, it's also a lot about quality. The main difference between the iPhone and the Android in terms of their apps is that Android is open source and the iPhone is approval based. This means that anybody can create and put apps on the Android App Market whereas on the iPhone the apps have to be approved before making it onto the App Store. This is the reason Android is catching up rather quickly to iPhone in quantity, but it's also the reason iPhone is so far ahead in quality. Because apps have to be approved to make it onto iPhone a lot more quality goes into the apps. Don't get me wrong, iPhone has it's fair share of useless, pointless, and just plain stupid apps, but on Android there are just tons of cheap knockoffs of iPhone exclusives and awful apps. So what does all of this mean overall? It means that iPhone has better quality exclusives (tiny wings, run, action hero, the rat on a vehicle games, zombie highway, ski safari, the Call Of Mini shooters, etc.) and the Android has a long list of stupid exclusives that are allowed on Android because it is open source and allows anything.
So overall iPhone wins in both quantity and quality. Not very much in quantity but by quite a bit in quality.
There are also some others things to consider. The iPhone has retina display which means it has the highest resolution screen out of any smartphone. This gives the apps on iPhone better graphics then on other phones. iPhone also has game centre which is a social network for apps, where you receive acheivements, friends, a profile, leader boards and more. So I know so far the iPhone is pretty much dominating the Android. And this is all research based, so don't think for one second that I'm being biased. But there are two things that help the Android get closer to the iPhone in apps. First of all, the screens on most Androids are a little bit bigger then iPhone screens. Although the iPhone screen size is perfectly fine for apps, the Androids screen size is a bit better. Also, it has a lot more free apps then iPhone. Although iPhone might have better apps, a lot of them are paid, meanwhile the Android has a great selection of free apps. But this isn't enough to bring it to iPhones level.
So all in all, iPhone wins this category. It has the highest quantity of apps (750,000 apps, 150,000 ahead of Android) and because it is approval based it has a better quality list of exclusive apps. Retina display and game centre also help. Android comes in second with the second highest amount of apps (600,000 apps) and a slightly bigger screen then the iPhone, with more free apps. However, it really suffers from open source, which means that it has a lot of terrible apps from random people. And lastly, you may have noticed I didn't even mention the Blackberry. That's because it comes in dead last with 1000-3000 apps, awful controls and its terrible small screen.
Winner: iPhone (5 points)
Runner Up: Android (3 points)
Loser: Blackberry (1 point)
