Do iPhone Users Like Google+ More Than Android Users?

TechCrunch noted that the Google+ app for iPhone became the number 1 downloaded free app within 24 hours of its release.

Google+ Now The Top Free App In The Apple App Store

But, what about Google’s own extremely successful mobile platform? Google reported that 500,000 Android devices are sold each day. Let’s take a look at Android’s top free apps list.

Android Market Top Free in Apps

Google+ is sitting at #8 as I write this (early in the day of July 21, 2011). One could argue that the Google+ for Android app was available the day Google+ became available in its limited public beta release phase and that this accounts for the lower interest level in the Android Market. However, take a look at the app at #2. That’s Facebook for Android. That app has been a available for a very long time and is being downloaded at an apparently greater rate.

Why is it that there is the appearance that Google+ is so much more popular among iPhone users?
