    We've all heard it before from iOS users: "iOS apps are less crash prone". Frankly, I think most of us would agree with that. Who hasn't seen an error message like the one pictured above? My wife doesn't see messages like that on her iPhone, even though her apps crash sometimes (they just go away). According to the "State of Mobile Device Performance" report from Blanco Technology, Android apps are actually less crash prone than their counterparts on iOS, at least recently. These numbers are drawn from the 3rd quarter of 2016 which was a big Pokemon Go time, so I'm sure that crash prone app has a lot to do with it. Still, Android handled it better: 65% of iOS devices reported crashing apps compared to just 25% on Android. The "crashiest" Android phone? LeEco's Le 2.

    I've had a couple apps crash on my Pixel that didn't crash on my S7 Edge. Reddit is Fun is one of them for sure. Actually thats the only one I can think of that crashes enough for me to notice. Oh, also Google Maps which I thought was odd being a Google app but it wasn't the greatest on my past phones either. But compared to my daughter on her iPhone on the latest iOS, 2 apps crashing is nothing. She always gets mad at her phone for apps crashing. So...in my small bubble of devices, I can confirm her iPhone has more crashes than my Android phones.

    My work's iPad mini 2 crashes every other day or so. Difference is there is no notice of crash, it just takes you to home screen like nothing happened till you try to return to app and it's frozen and takes you back to home screen.

    My wife doesn't get the error message on her iPhone or iPad but the device suddenly going back to the home screen speaks louder than an error message would. I guess they skip the message since it's a duh thing and it saves time. A crash is a crash so the message only wastes time because you gotta open it back up either way so why bother to message.
    Her iPad is older so the lack of ram is the culprit there but I don't know why her iPhone randomly crashes during the day with nothing in particular crashing each time, no rhyme or seeming reason.
