As Many as 200,000 Android Users Have Data Stolen by Trojan
Apple goes through apps with a fine-tooth comb. While it casts a blind eye to certain practices (data mining) it delights in playing moral police and banning apps which may be malicious or infringing on other's content (for example, reskins/repackages of popular apps). This has outraged many.
Google, by contrast, is much looser in app approvals. While it ostensibly screens for malicious apps, much of its screening is autonomous. As a result some developers have taken to grabbing images and code from a popular app, repackaging it, and republishing it for profit and glory. While this practice is rather disturbing from a developer perspective, more disturbing still is the malware that's sneaking into the Android Marketplace.
