NY Times: capitalism in the apps market is mean
Categories: Google+ Posts

Possibly the worst article I've ever read about the new app economy. Apple has 600,00 apps. Google play about the same number. Both the App Store and Google Play have hit somewhere around 25 billion downloads EACH. One analyst predicts apps will generate $46 billion in revenue by 2016.

Yet this article finds some independent developers who aren't competitive, or producing apps no one wants, and blames Apple. (And the hilarious part: barely a mention of Google or Android apps, and focusing on iPhone apps, means it misses the fact that competitive operating systems will change the landscape for the better.)
