    I'm not really surprised, but good for Apple.
    Cool find, op.

    Interesting. I like the perspective. Comes as no surprise, though.

    A big share of those apps are free, which is fairly important part of the equation. Last time I checked, McDonald's doesn't give out free burgers.

    Just make sure you don't spontaneously upload it. ;)

    Many of them are the same quality as McDonald's hamburgers.

    The android market is like a Salmonella-infested Mexican burrito compared to the app store.

    Is the article using "hamburgers" to mean ALL McDonald's burgers, or just the actual cheap "Hamburger" that it sells? Stats can say anything if you're not careful...

    If the statistics were based on the number of paid apps sold per unit time it'd be a lot more valid of a comparison.

    It doesn't matter, all McDonald's burgers are bad.

    +1 Plus vegetarians and people who like you know real hamburgers might eat elsewhere. At least you got plenty of good apps both free and paid on the app store. Including cooking apps and weight loss apps. :D

    Edit: OMG there's a McD app for our friends in the UK!
