Don’t know about you, but my Google Play always gave the impression of not very good analog App Store for Android.

As Google develops Google Play
Regular updates that occur to Google Play, requires huge financial injections. Therefore, most of the money that Google earns from the catalog, by charging developers a fee for every transaction, return to Google Play in the form of investments.

Really cool that Google pays much attention to Google Play and it is really noticeable. In recent years, the directory has become much easier, more intuitive, and the quality of applications hosted in its range is greater. However, I still have plenty of claims to application security. After all, no store, including the App Store, does not suffer from so many of malicious software. This means that either Google is working efficiently enough, or Apple has developed a unique strategy of catching harmful programs and you should Google it to learn.
