Android seems to be the platform of choice for free apps
Pretty much you can get a good reaction out of anyone whenever you see or hear the term free just because you can't help but resist a good thing – especially when it's free of course. If you're in the game of getting yourself into a smartphone and love free things, you'll probably want to gravitate towards some kind of Android powered device. Not only are you presented with various customizations to make the experience worthwhile, the platform hosts the most amount of free apps versus paid apps out of all the mobile operating systems out there. Based on a recent study conducted by Distimo, approximately 57 percent of the apps in the Android Market are free. When you look at other platforms, you'll find that Windows Mobile's apps are 22 percent free, Nokia at 26 percent, BlackBerry at 26 percent, iPhone at 28 percent, and Palm's App Catalog at 34 percent. Naturally people will love free apps, but then again, being free might not dictate whether or not they are quality ones.
