It is a popular belief that Apple computers are more stable and crash less than PC’s. Is the same true when you compare Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS, to the other major mobile operating system, Google’s Android OS. Well a recent report released by Crittercism indicates that iOS is much less stable than Android, in fact iOS was found to crash twice as often as Android. The biggest offender is Apple’s most recent update to its OS, version 5.01.1, it is responsible for 28% of the crashes. By comparison, the biggest offender for Android is an earlier version of Gingerbread, v. 2.3.3, it accounts for less than 4% of the crashes. The reasons for this large difference are not clear. Some speculate this it is a result of Apple’s strict approval process for Apps that results in long delays before developers can get bug fixes and updates into the App store. Android developers on the other hand can choose auto updating of their Apps which means any updates made to the App after it has been initially approved can go straight to the Android market without any further review. Whatever the reason, it may give people who are on undecided as to which ecosystem to commit to, another reason to consider the Android world.
