[forbes]Do iOS Apps Crash More Than Android Apps? A Data Dive - Page 3

post #21 of 55
I as well have issues with apps crashing on the iPad. App crashes on the iPod touch on the other hand are rare, but has happened.

When comparing my Android Device to my iPod touch, I would say they're both rare. Comparing it to my iPad on the other hand is a whole different story... rolleyes.gif

I've had a few random restarts on my Unrooted, Locked galaxy nexus with android 4.0.2. Nothing out there is bug free.

That's surprising. I would have guessed that stability would be one of the things the Apple App Store people would look at before approving an app. If they're not screening apps for quality control, then why are they screening apps? Do they just reject the ones that are similar to products Apple intends to develop and profit from themselves sometime in the future?

Mmm... I'm not so sure about the test:

1) What apps subscribe to this service? Are they all the same? Or are there more/different ones on iOS?
2) Were any of these devices jail broken? Where any of these subscribed apps jail broken apps?

They reject any app that mimics phone functionality such as a "phone app" however the screening is to prevent malware, apps using private APIs, trashy apps, etc.

...doesn't the App Store on iOS devices have a lot more Apps available? Surely this would skew the data.

That's what I'm thinking... if there's 100,000 different apps on iOS using the service, but only 10,000 on Android, wouldn't the diversity on iOS screw with the results? If they're the same 10000 apps, yeah, sure, but what if a whole lot more crapola on iOS subscribes to this app's service?

The same could be said of Windows vs. OSX. However, iOS is supposed to be highly curated so allegedly these issues would be minimal.

They reject any app that mimics phone functionality such as a "phone app" however the screening is to prevent malware, apps using private APIs, trashy apps, etc.

If the tests showed android crashing more you wouldn't have any doubts about the testing methodology. If apple has the resources to disallow "trashy" apps, then there is no excuse for allowing apps that crash. That is of course, unless iOS is simply inherently less stable.

I would estimate have an app crash on my iPhone 4S about once every 5 hours of use, most often it is Safari.

Thats more than likely not OS5's fault so much as your phone is outdated for the OS you are trying to run...

OH LOOK ITS YOU. I remember you, crusader of the apple family crest.

Please, i've seen your other arguments on the threads whenever it comes to apple.

Don't try to say anything that states otherwise, any argument you make is always completely biased. The avatar does not help say that you can offer an unbiased opinion in any argument against apple.
