Have your phone crash on your sucks. No two ways about it. The question that often comes up is which operating system is more stable, iOS or Android? Crittercism, a research startup that analyzes mobile app crashes, has published some data that will end the argument about which app is more stable.
Crittercism’s data (gathered from more than 214 million app launches between November and December of 2011) shows that apps on iOS crashed much more frequently than comparable apps on Android. I was surprised that iOS wasn’t the victor, with being responsible for nearly 75% of total crashes.
There are a bunch of reasons that Apple could have lost this battle, iOS 5 is new to the market, hardware issues, internet connectivity, language support, or just plain ‘ol poorly coded apps. There are more Android handset on the market than iPhones, so the answer definitely isn’t volume.
The data shows that apps on iOS did crash substantially more than Android apps.Nice little study to keep in your back pocket the next time you find your self in an argument with an Apple Fanboy.
