No matter which genre of smartphone you own or choosing to buy. The apps that are available will have an influence on how happy you are with the phone. There are plenty of top quality apps that you can download. However for me There's always a remarkable sub-selection of apps that are totally free. The wonderfully named 'Android' phone seems to have cornered the market in the same way that VHS did with tape systems. Android's open source strategy is the main factor for its success. Being a free platform has expanded the Android device install base, which in turn has driven growth in the number of third party multi-platform and mobile operator apps available.
The down side (isn't there always a down side) for smartphones are that some applications are not what they purport to be. Like computer systems need anti-virus and anti-spyware to combat malware, so does your smartphone. I have chosen to use AVG for no other reason that it is my application of choice on my computer system and works very well.
