publishing partner AppAdvice
reported the results of the Crittercism
study in graphs for readers to interpret, stating the graphics show clearly that fewer mobile applications crash under the Android
operating system than under its rival iOS
But this is probably not all Apple's fault, according to AppAdvice, because this version of the company's operating system is new enough that many application software
developers have not yet found time enough to tweak their third-party apps into compatibility.
Still, iOS 4.3.3 caused 10.66 percent of the mobile application crashes, though it has been available much longer, the article noted.
Android 4.0.1 accounted for only 1.04 percent of mobile app crashes in the study, appearing stable by comparison with 28.64 percent for iOS 5.0.1, and hardware issues may be partly to blame, according to Forbes
, AppAdvice reported.
Users of mobile apps
on both operating systems
can scan the images
and compare the charts with their experiences, then conclude for themselves whether Crittercism's study brings good news or bad news -- or neither.
