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.

But again, as the article notes, how many times have you had the app just close without your conscious decision to exit it? Because that makes it seem like you never actually had a crash...

If you're referring to the iPod touch, I said I rarely had apps crash, not "never". As the article says, when an iOS app crashes it's silent and just takes you back to the Springboard. That happened to me perhaps five times in the entire time I owned the iPod, and from what I recall, never in a native app.
