Study finds that iOS Apps Crash More Frequently Than Android Apps

Posted on Friday, February 3rd, 2012 in Uncategorized by Nick

According to most Apple iOS users and even our own Louis, Android apps crash more than iOS apps. A study by Crittercism has shown that iOS apps crash more frequently compared to the Android apps.

iOS 5.0.1 leads both operating systems in crashes with a staggering 28.64%. The next closest to iOS 5.0.1 is iOS 4.2.10 with 12.64%.

Crittercism though tracks three times as many iOS apps as they do Android apps, so the below graph is a better graphic based on popularity.

Other things to consider:

  • Android tells the user when an app crashes while iOS doesn’t
  • Digitizor.com made a good point that iOS developers only have to account for two devices while Android developers have to account for hundres
  •  iOS allow developers to manage their own memory
