Which app store gets the big name apps first?

Which app store tends to get the big name apps first? App Store? Google Play? (I would've thought Google Play since it has more market share)

Both... varies from dev to dev and day to day.
Android overall has the higher marketshare, but no one Android device outsells the iPhone/iPod. iPhone devs don't have to worry about hundreds and hundreds of different devices with dozens of screen resolutions/chip combos etc etc....

Depends, Android get some apps first, iOS get other apps first. Instagram (something I still don't understand the need for), for example, was an iOS only app for ages, despite Android's larger market share.

I can't think of an example that works the other way around, but I'm sure there are many.

Many Twitter clients started on Android to then appear on iOS... ahem, yeah.

Cheers, I just use the official Twitter app so it's not something I look into :).

I find Twitter's official app does most of what I need, too.
Many 3rd party apps have become bloated and gimmicky.
