When it comes to the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store, one of the major separating points would be the fact that Apple employees will first need to manually review those apps prior to making them available for download to the masses, whereas Google decided to be more amicable in the sense where a hands-off approach will do, trusting Android developers to not have any kind of ill will or ill intention to the masses, so that those apps can be made available to the masses in double quick time. This has led to some quality control issues in turn, with some malware thrown in from time to time.
Google looks as though they are about to do otherwise now manually reviewing apps prior to having them go live on the Play Store. It is said that this brand new system has been in place for quite some time now, although not too many people picked that up since the review process has moved at a rather fast pace, which saw it take just a matter of hours instead of days.
Part of the entire approval process is still automated, so that might be part of the reason as to why there has not been too many people who picked it up in the first place.
