Android apps vs. iOS apps...And the winner is...
There's no doubt that the popularity of apps is soaring, and the demand for them is going to be even higher in the years to come, as consumers demand more of them from their carriers, as well as from the apps developers. At the moment, iOS apps and Android apps seem to dominate the apps marketplace. The question is, which one is better and more reliable of the two?
According to a report, a study claims iOS apps crash more often than Android apps. In the study, iOS apps crash more frequently, especially under version 5.0.1, while those on Android remain to be pretty stable. One factor could be that, since 5.0.1 is quite new, developers may have failed to make their apps compatible with the latest version of Apple's mobile platform. However, the study notes that the older iOS 4.3.3 also had its share of app crashes.
Another report claims the use of location or GPS services or cameras, Internet connectivity, connecting to 3G or Wi-Fi, memory, and even language, are potential reasons why iOS apps crash more often.
The study results and reports above can be viewed as a potential plus for Google over its rival Apple. But then again, it's ultimately up to the consumers to decide on what is the best apps platform for them to use and which ones they trust the most.
Meanwhile, let the apps wars continue, and may the company with the best apps platform wins.
