Users of Apple iOS are Quality Conscious While Android Users are Bucks Conscious! MLB’s Chief
If you are a quality conscious person than no doubt you would prefer to buy Apple iOS powered devices (including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, Macbook Pro, and Macbook Air) than Android powered devices like Samsung Galaxy & HTC and Motorola Xoom etc. It is not my personal opinion; my wordings are just based on a recent report by 9to5mac which reads that Android users are bucks conscious and don’t eager to buy paid contents especially smartphone’s Applications which are generally known as Apps from Android Market. On the other hand, the users of Apple iOS devices frequently spend their money on buying Apps from Apple App Store.

MLB’s Chief expressed his thoughts about the users of Apple iOS devices in following wordings;
The iPhone and iPad user is interested in buying content–that’s one of the reasons they bought the device. The Android buyer is different. It’s a great phone–make no mistake about it. But if you really want first rate digital content on a device, your first look will probably be an iPhone. And on the tablet, an iPad.
Interestingly, Bob is the same guy who has earlier asked Google to exercise a better quality control in its Android Market. Moreover, Bob’s company is governed by all of pro baseball’s teams and exclusively has 1500000 happy subscribers of its popular mobile apps. It should be kept in mind that MLB is the company that develops its apps for all Android, iOS and Facebook Platforms.
Bob further argued that Google flexible policy towards its software and pointed out that the Android fragmentation is the one and only reason behind limiting the Android powered phones in numbers. He said that Android fragmentation is “diminishing returns”.
The Android user typically is less likely to buy, and therefore the ROI on developing for Android is different than it is for Apple.
9to5mac comments on this opinion by MLB’s big boss in the following wordings;
Android users are being monetized through advertising rather than by requiring them to pay for first rate digital content, which is in stark contrast to the iOS’s app monetization philosophy. In my personal opinion, fragmentation is the biggest hurdle for Google’s platform and the lack of it is one of Apple’s greatest advantages. Fragmentation is more than just an inconvenience – it’s clearly holding back big development projects with fat budgets, most evidently triple-A games from big name publishers and VC-funded mobile developers.
We have earlier posted an article on Google’s recent mood which seems to convert its Open policy to Close one for its Android OS, to escape from fragmentation and to enter in the paying world of integration.Apple, Google
