A new report from start-up company Crittercism claims that iOS apps are crashing at a greater rate than most popular Android apps. The mobile app monitoring company came up with these results after collecting and breaking down data in a 2 month period, which consisted of analyzing OS versions and apps that ultimately explains the crashes.
What you’ll also find out to be interesting is Crittercism chart points out that Android isn’t the only mobile operating system to have older versions (or builds) moving around on devices today. The research company discovered that there were at least 23 different versions of iOS and 33 of Android — hell, I didn’t even know that many versions of iOS existed.
That said, the most important thing the chart details is the higher you go up in OS build, the higher the crash rates, but logic says if the majority of people run the newest OS that the rate would have to be higher anyway. The reason behind the crashes is quite simple, apps we love to use don’t get updated to be compatible with new firmware. Crittercism highlights some pretty interesting data, but it’s nothing too glaring to be overly concerned about, as both platforms are crashing at less than a 1% rate. But if you consider this to be some sort of contest, then Android is tad-bit more stable OS.
