Yes, Apple makes you jump through more hoops. With Apple, you will need to renew your developer license every year, re-publish your apps with renewed certificates every year, and go through longer wait periods for your app to get reviewed. It can be a pain. However, Google Play virtually does nothing to verify your app other than scan it for viruses before allowing it to go through to the store. No real person ever looks at it in my experience, while I know Apple looks at it because Apple has a test account that I setup under my apps and I can see when they last logged in (and they've asked me follow up questions). So from developer standpoint, you might think Google Play is better because you don't have to do so much, but from a consumer point-of-view, I have a higher comfort level with Apple knowing someone is taking a look at the app to make sure it is what the developer says it is and it isn't some kind of malware.
