ABI Research selects the Apple App Store as the best of the mobile stores
When it comes to innovation, the Windows Play Store narrowly beats out the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Microsoft's mobile app store gets points for its "fresh approach to app discovery" which is important since it is the way that users find out what is available in the store and find the apps that they want to install. This is a part of the Apple App Store that needs work, according to API Senior analyst Aapo Markkanen
Of course, many of you prefer the mobile app store belonging to your favorite OS, which is why ABI Research took on this task. Instead of using opinions, ABI used data such as revenue, download volume and trends to rank the stores.

The App Store is okay, but it needs some serious tweaking and updating in my opinion. Apple should consider adding video previews, so you see a demo if the game play or app in use.
Google Play looks much better to me, but it could benefit from that live tile kind of effect the App Store has.
I have not had the pleasure of using WP8's app market yet, but I look forward to it.
