"Apple don't review the app's source code, it reviews the binary and subjects it to a test."

I agree with what you're saying - yet Apple seems to have way less malignant software in their app store. Google should have equal muscles to vet the binaries, dontcha think?

Play Store seems to have way more cruft and crappy game clones than App Store, but does Apple actually have equal percentage of malware in total, and they just silently take out the garbage? IDK.
