Research says Android four.zero and iOS eight are almost definitely to crash your apps
Ever had the sensation that sure telephone working methods usually tend to crash your apps than others? It isn’t simply you. Crittercism has posted its newest breakdown of crash reviews from about 20,000 apps, and it is clear that sure working techniques aren’t as pleasant as others. On Android, Ice Cream Sandwich (four.zero) is most probably to wreck your day; KitKat (four.four) is shut behind, whereas Lollipop’s early popularity for glitches apparently does not have an effect on apps. With Apple units, nevertheless, the tables flip. Whereas iOS’ app crash price is decrease general, iOS eight is a little more problematic than its predecessor. That is not shocking provided that Apple hasn’t had as a lot time to deal with points in eight, however you might really feel higher for those who’re nonetheless holding on to 7.
Do not be too fast to brag about your selection of platform. The stats say lots about app stability, however they do not inform the story of your working system. A rock-strong social networking shopper does not matter a lot if primary Android or iOS options are breaking down. Additionally, the data could also be skewed by the variety of lively customers. It is exhausting to understand how dependable Lollipop might be in the long term when solely a small slice of Android units are operating it, in any case. If nothing else, Crittercism’s figures present that stability does not persistently enhance or deteriorate — typically, it varies from launch to launch.
