If you’ve ever searched for a wallpaper in the Google Play Store, chances are you were met by a never ending list of results.

In fact, 26,900 Android app titles contain the word “Wallpaper” according to a list compiled by app discovery site App Brain. App Brain decided to create the list after a similar one consisting of the top most frequent words used in iOS app titles was released by Appsfire.

Both lists contain about half of the same keywords, just ranked differently. For instance, both Android and iOS app stores appear to have a large number of “Free” or “Lite” apps, however, contrary to belief, it seems iOS has almost double the amount of “Free” and “Lite” apps than Android (granted, iOS has been around longer).

Keywords between the two also seem to highlight platform specific features. For example “Wallpapers,” “LWP (Live Wallpapers),” “Theme,” and “Widget” highlight Android’s highly customizable nature, while iOS’s retina display is highlighted by the fact that “HD” is number one on its list.

Interestingly enough, Android users seem to be looking for “Love” in all the wrong places, while iOS users have “Kids” in mind when searching for apps.

So what do you think? Any of these top words surprise you? What are some keywords you thought for sure would be on these lists?

Developers take note, it may be time to think up more creative keywords. Cheers!
