Here’s Why Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s Apps Dominate Google Inc (GOOG)

When it comes to tablet based apps, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) continues to show Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) who is boss.

See why Apple Inc. (AAPL) iPad Apps Continue to Dominate Google Inc (GOOG) AndroidAccording to a recent report by Canalys, half of the top iPad apps are either unavailable or not optimized for Android. In other words, Cupertino pretty much has a monopoly on these apps.

When you take a closer look at the top 50 paid and free apps offered by Apple’s App Store, you will see that 30 percent are not even available on Google Play. Along with this, 18 percent were available on Play but they were not optimized for tablet users. Instead, they offered nothing more than a smart phone app that can be used on a tablet (not exactly the best way of doing things).

This is why Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Dominates

It is stuff like this that shows why Apple’s App Store is top dog, with Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) playing catch up.

Canalys Senior Analyst Tim Shepherd weighed in by saying “Quite simply, building high-quality app experiences for Android tablets has not been among many developers’ top priorities to date.”

In other words, don’t blame this problem on Larry Page and crew. Along the same lines, you cannot give too much credit to Apple CEO Tim Cook. We can give credit where credit is due, but a lot of this has to do with the long standing reputation of Apple’s App Store.

When it comes down to it, app developers know where the money is at and they just aren’t going to waste their time optimizing for Android tablets.

Is a Change Coming?

As nice as this is for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), things may not stay this way forever. Canalys is expecting a shift down the road, as Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) continues to bring improvements to its app store.

To make this happen, the search engine needs to do more than attract a larger number of developers. It also needs to gain the trust of consumers, helping them spend a greater amount on apps.

There are hedge fund managers like David Einhorn, Christopher Hansen, Jeffrey Edwards, and Mark Diker who are heavily invested in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and love news like this.

Do you feel that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Play has any change of catching up in the near future? Or will the Apple App Store continue to dominate? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
