iPhone Apps Crash More Than Android Apps, Study Shows
Goes to show you, the power of advertising !!!!
Since its inception, Apple's (AAPL) iOS platform has been touted as being one of the most stable and secure mobile OSes around. Given its "Walled Garden" and rigorous app review, Apple's ecosystem is, for better or worse, stringently controlled and monitored -- certainly more than Google's (GOOG) Android platform. Ostensibly, that would create greater stability and a smoother app experience. And considering iOS preceded Android's launch and has amassed a giant number of developers since -- a number that Research in Motion (RIMM) and Microsoft (MSFT) couldn't match even when added together, despite being around longer -- many would expect it to deliver the most solid app experience around.
However, according to a study from mobile app monitoring startup Crittercism, iPhone apps are far more crash-prone than those on Android devices.
