Larry Magid: Are Android Apps Less Secure than iPhone Apps?

There is always going to be a battle between security and freedom. Apple’s tight control over iPhone apps probably does help protect customers by assuring that apps are working properly and behaving ethically, but there is a cost associated with that as well. Some perfectly safe apps have been rejected and some developers have accused Apple of rejecting apps for business reasons.

Google’s more open process feels a lot more democratic but, like democracy itself, requires a bit more vigilance on the part of its “citizens.”
