You can download content from the web without using the app store though, can't you? iOS has a file explorer now. I'm not defending Apple or anything, just pointing out that it isn't quite the same.

Not really, no. You can't just download applications like you can on Windows at all.

Well of course you can't download desktop applications, but you can still do just about everything in a browser that you could in an "App".

It is easy to do all of this when it costs you next to nothing, nobody uses the windows store to buy games.
