Google vs Apple App Security

http://qz.com/121185/google-is-waging-war-on-apps-that-attack-infiltrate-and-steal-from-your-phone/

This article talks about the pros and cons to having more restricted app development policies, and how that affects the amount of apps removed from the stores due to malware.  Google play has a more “welcoming” view on developing and publishing apps on the store, and because of this has allowed many apps that are harmful to users.  Whereas Apple has a more restricted view on publishing apps, although they still have their fair share of attacks.  Google is taking steps to stopping this by making it easier for users to report apps, in order to have them removed.
