Apps running on the latest Android operating system crash less than iOS apps, according to a report from Crittercism. The company's mobile application performance management (mAPM) solution processes over 30,000 requests per second from over 1 billion mobile users in real-time.

Crittercism gathered performance data to share the 'first-ever' mobile experience benchmark report. The report uses data from Crittercism customers actively optimizing their app performance. App performance across un-optimized applications is expected to be worse.

iOS Findings:
● iOS 7.1 had the lowest crash rate
● iPhone 5 crashes least
● Apps on iPhones are more stable than iPads
● Older iPads crash more
● iOS 6 crashed 2.5% of the time
● iOS 7 crashed 2.1% of the time
● iOS 7.1 is the most stable with a 1.6% crash rate

Android Findings:
● Gingerbread has the highest crash rate
● Samsung owns the top spots for both Android phones and tablets stability
● Android tablets have worse crash rates than Android phones
● Apps on Gingerbread crashed 1.7% of the time
● KitKat, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean crashed 0.7% of the time besting any iOS version tested.

Notably, the gaming category of apps crashed way more than any other category. Gaming apps had a crash rate of 4.4% compared to 1.8% for media apps, 1.4% for news and entertainment apps, 1.2% for business apps, 0.6% for social apps, and 0.4% for ecommerce apps.

not really a scientific study... you could easily infer the reason Apple devices crash more often is because their users more commonly use gaming and graphic intensive apps--not really a surprise there.

Samsheeps and their faulty crap are all "oh but we have more of this and that" yet how can it even perform well then? That sums it up like their lives. It's all over the universe and your world. iOS apps crash less than iOS which clearly explains the malware domination, get it through your thick blind ass already. 5 months and you're still having any hopes left for a knockoff of the ruler. Wake up and quit day dreaming already. Stop defending the sickness it's getting to you. Get your facts straight from the illness cult of 2010 and smell the coffee. Android crashes more than iOS!
