The iPhone Apps that was launched with the launch of the iPod touch gave a complete new meaning to playing games, navigating the interface, social networking etc. but with the usage of the mobile as an effective substitute the iPhone apps are taking over the entire world. The applications are so diverse that it is difficult to point out a specific category where all the App's are converging. There are several big names in the App world but still every App has a unique selling proposition and a user experience that no other App on the market has.
The Android Market has been quite aggressive in the past few months with the release of the android applications such as Google Maps, Skype, YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo! All these Applications were well received by the customers. Android applications are generally more costly than iPhone applications due to the extra features that come with it, however they do have a long lasting effect on the users and they don't mind investing in them. With the latest release of the android operating system the development cycle has started again and there are plenty of exciting applications being added to the existing ones. All the major phone brands are using Android for their mobile devices.
The best way to get a detailed list of the available iPhone applications is to search on the internet or get in touch with the developer directly. The developers have a close working relationship with the mobile network operators and they are very familiar with the functioning of the particular models. You can download an application for free from the Android Market but that does not mean that the applications will work properly. So the best thing to do is to buy the application and use it on your handset. However it is essential that you make sure that the application is compatible with your handset. In case of any questions feel free to contact the developer.
