iPhone Apps Are Cheaper Than Android: Report


By: Michelle Maisto, eWeek

Android users are less inclined to download apps than iPhone users, which leads to developers having to charge higher prices for apps in the Android Market, according to Canalys. Apple iOS users are generally paying lower prices for apps than users of Android devices, according to a Feb. 23 report from research firm Canalys. While free apps are the most downloaded apps on both platforms, prices of the top paid-for apps, says Canalys, are "dramatically higher" in the Android Market than in the Apple App Store. The top 100 paid-for Android apps, for example, would cost $374.37—more than 2.5 times the $147 it would cost to buy the top 100 paid iOS apps. Even narrowing the selection to the top 10 or 20 apps in each category, said Canalys, showed a "striking disparity in pricing."

Horn co-wrote the bestselling book Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns with Harvard Professor Clayton Christensen. He and Christensen later co-founded The Innosight Institute, a non-for profit think tank devoted to applying the theories of disruptive innovation to problems in the social sector. In the future, Horn predicts the majority of students will be engaged in what he calls "blended learning" where they'll learn online with control over the pace of their learning in schools with teachers providing guidance
