The Beauty of Sponsored Studies
The recent story about iOS vs Android’s app stability has, I’m sure, caused quite a stir with it’s findings. Apparently the iPhone crashes more often than any version of Android. This was apparently shocking news to everyone, but after a little digging it’s kind of an interesting topic.
Crittercism was formed and backed by capital from Google.
Also, I call into question the data provided. How did Crittercism get internal data from the iPhone’s crashes? Were the crashes simply crash-to-app launcher, or more serious ones that caused a force reset? Did they include apps or system basics that failed to launch? Did they just use a few iPhones and extrapolate it into a larger data set? The guys at Crittercism aren’t too forthcoming with how the data was acquired from the internal crash reporting system from Apple.
I would remain skeptical at this point and keep yourself informed. This reeks of corporate tomfoolery.
May be a little Spin Doctor action going on there.
Well i can’t really speak for android apps since i am on an alpha build for ICS but the iphone apps do crash on the iPhone, not reset your phone crash but they do.
