I think Android users are just less likely to spend money on apps/content vs iOS users.



I think that's quite the blanket statement. I don't believe that to be the case at all.

I have a data point of one (me) who disagrees with that. I've spent heaps on apps. I was shocked to find that iOS makes you enter a password before buying stuff - what kind of a PITA is that?

On webOS (myself, wife, daughter) I had the option of requiring a password every time an app was purchased or just letting my 13 year old daughter rack up whatever credit card charges she felt like on her phone. I don't consider it a PITA to enter a password, I consider it a security feature. I am shocked that you imply that android does not have such a requirement and I feel further vindicated in choosing webOS over android.
