PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There's an article making the rounds right now about how applications on iOS crash more often than applications on Android. I'm not going to detail the entire methodology - the article itself does so - but it does raise an interesting talking point about how both mobile operating systems handle application crashes and updates.

You're wrong. It's bad iOS developers.

Your statement that iOS apps are more crash prone because Android apps are updated more often is just silly. Did you ever wonder why C++ apps crash more than Java apps? Why would you think it would be different in the mobile space?

With the explosion of mobile app development there has been an influx of very average programmers that don't know much about memory management. And when you consider the limited amount of RAM the iPhone and iPad have it all starts to make sense. The majority of these iOS apps crashes can probably be attributed to bad programmers that can't manage their memory properly.
