Funnily enough apple is one of the few companies that you can trust with your data simply due to their target Market. Apples profits come from selling macs and iOS devices, which means that the cloud service is another way like iTunes to get you onto their platform and to stay with their platform. Google on the other hand gets it's profits from ad's which is more likely to lead them to share your data with advertises to increase their revenue.

Some apps being removed have been odd, but also don't count out a lot of apps have had to be pulled due to copyright and other disputes, look at VLC, lodsys etc..
