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.

Well... Technically they do. But mostly because it's easier to screw up a C++ app and/or memory management.

It's easier to screw up the design of a java program and get away with it. c++ punishes bad programming practices a lot harder.

C++ punishes bad programming practices? No, it punishes the subsequent maintainer of that program.
As design goes, it's as easy to screw up C++ as it is Java.
