How Would You Change App Store/Market Permission Models?

In a shift from my normal informational type posts, today I'm interested in starting a discussion on the topic of App Markets/Stores.

Apple has a more rigid review process and a slower time to market for Apps.  Google allows apps quickly to market and relies on the visibility of requested permissions and shifts security decisions to the users. (Very basic descriptions, there are many more moving parts)

Which model is working better? If you could make changes to either model, what would you change?

Interested in thoughts and ideas.
