Android came before the iOS, although the iOS, upon launch, was better than the Android experience. But all that is past tense. Android is securely in the lead now. And the number of apps on the Android platform is a key indicator that is the case.

Google Play will hit a million apps in June (probably sooner than the iOS app store)
Google Play now has 800,000 apps and is growing faster than the iOS app store...... Google Play was growing revenues twice as fast as Apple’s app store. And with the fact that while it took eight months for Google Play to go from 200,000 to 400,000 apps, it took only slightly longer to get from 400,000 to its current 800,000 — meaning that Google is almost maintaining its rate of growth despite the massive increase in absolute numbers.
