Brilliant! App Stores Sort Usage by User Brand
Does your Android sport your games and toys? Is your iPhone a portable assistant?
Does your Blackberry color-code messages?
All mobiles are purchased with the same baseline device capabilities... they all come with a way to connect. They all can place and receive calls, they can all support some kind of text service, all smartphones now have the ability to serve as flexible technology, specified and denoted by purchase. You can customize your use.
Now with this market of individuality, developers, good ones, can peddle their inventions via very rigid user channels. Each device manufacturer has a way to participate. We can browse by need or just simply out of boredom for fun, inconsequential time-savers.
These apps are like penny candy... inexpensive to the point of being frivolous, yet worth the investment should you find one or two that meet the demands of a busy schedule, or which can keep your snotty teen-aged son preoccupied for five minutes because you need him to seem respectable.

Apple, the original app developer, currently leads in terms of apps available, with over 500,000 filling every demand a user should require (and some they shouldn't, I bet).
Each device manufacturer claims their phone as the one to be all things a user could imagine, and each platform screams developer demand and development strategy. More is not just more, if the one you need is not what's there.
App developers create device functionality which meets a manufacturer's claims, and has the potential to make a mother less conspicuous.
Your FACE is snotty... "that's what SHE said"...
Now if they only made a Blackberry app that would walk the dog.
