  1. A recent report from Crittercism, who measure app performance across a range of platforms, has stated that iOS apps crash on average more frequently than Android apps. The current versions of each operating system, Android 4.4 'KitKat' and iOS 7.1,...

    1. So Android developers are more skilled?
    2. So Apple deploys crashing apps?
    3. Even windows OS apps dont crash as often!

  3. I think the comparison of crashes between the iPhone 5 vs. the 5S was to be expected when they switched from a 32-bit CPU to 64-bit. I think most of the app developers have optimized their apps to work on the updated chip since then and most crashes have disappeared.

    Other than that, the purpose of this article is....?

    iOS dev's must seriously contemplate fitting airbags, ABS and crumple zones into their app's.
  5. I have used both eco systems daily for years now. Also have been using kit kat and IOS7 since release and for me its easily one sided with most crashes being on the nexus (android).
  6. Typo? ".9" (Samsung) a lower failure rate than ".7" (HTC)???? New math, right!

    Well no-one develops for Symbian so I guess there are no crashes when you have no apps? ;)

    This actually surprises me. Like windows, android devices come in many shapes and form and a gazillion hardware configurations it's because of this that software doesn't always work as intended and the devices are prone to crashes. Where as an apple device they have like a dozen devices all built by the same company that builds the software which would have made you think software is much more refined and tuned as the devs know exactly the hardware that's going to be used. I am a devoted android user (got an S2 but preordered the S5) and when telling ppl about android I have always said it's faster and more fluid then ios but is prone to crashes.
