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.

on android out of memory the application locks up and continue to hog the resources. a dialog pops up asking what to do with the app. When I see one of those i have to reboot the whole system otherwise that app will freeze up again in short order if I just relaunch it.

You do realize that it essentially sends a kill -9 to the process when you press force close?

And I suggest you remove the "Advanced" Task Killer to remove the problem of memory hogs.

I just setup long press on my back button force closes apps (in the developer settings) works pretty well when apps lock up.
