"The reality of the situation is that available apps and app downloads are a go-to statistic for those who partake in avid discussions relating to Android vs iOS."
The fact of the matter is this: If Android has 2000000 apps and IOS has 4000000 apps and Windows has 1000000 apps does it really matter? The average user, besides games, will only regularly use about 10 imho. I have wp7 and have downloaded probably 200 apps over the time span but only regularly use 5. Kindle, Netflix, Ebay, google voice, and appflow. Some apps I have had to uninstall because I forgot that I had downloaded them and they just sat there for nothing for a long time. The point is, as the author stated in his piece, app number is a mute argument.
