Neither side comes off well here.
While developer interest in Android is finally starting to catch up to iOS, the open-source OS is far from the most convenient system to work with. Joe Hewitt, the extremely talented developer behind the iPhone's Facebook app, recently switched over to Android due to his frustration with the restrictive nature of App Store policies.

While this was hailed as a major victory by Android advocates, Hewitt has been far from unqualified from his praise of OS's app development process. One of his tweets describes Android development tools as "horrendous" and he considers the OS itself to be "hideous". Ouch.

On the plus side, Joe did add that "...the absence of big brother telling me what to do gives it a slight edge." So there's that I guess. If Apple would just take heed and loosen up their restrictions, they could have a shot at reeling developers like Hewitt back into the fold.
