Perhaps it's wise to be careful when choosing Android apps.
While I'm a huge fan of open source, intellectual freedom and options, there's a lot to be said for
sandboxing. I don't care about apps I'm not "allowed" to have, and I don't have to worry (as much) ;) about malware.
Not meant to start a discussion over "which is better"...certainly, none of that. Both systems have
advantages and disadvantages.
