Everyone likes apps for their smartphones today, it seems like every smartphone maker is rolling out their own app store to take advantage of the popularity of applications on mobile phones. There is lots of competition between app stores and companies are pulling out the stops to grab the cash out of a user’s wallet.

A new comparison of the Apple App Store and the Google Android Market has been published. The comparison looks at the prices of apps between the two stores and has found that Android apps cost just as much, and sometimes more than iPhone apps.

Washington Post figures the Apple App Store is cheaper in some instances because competition between the huge amount of similar apps has driven prices down. The Android market has much less apps available that Apple offers. At this time, the Android Market has about 6000 apps compared to 65,000 on the App Store.
