Apple App Store clearly has the edge in numbers compared with Android Market: about 100,000 iPhone apps to about 10,000 for Droid.

Droid leverages a host of Google-based services, and offers the free, just-released Google Maps by Navigation, a turn-by-turn navigation app that marries the phone's GPS with Google Maps. At left: The App Store's "Genius" recommendations; at right, Android Market's top paid apps.
