There is always a heated competition between Apple and Google as to whose OS is more stable. A recent report from Crittercism, mobile app management company shows that the latest Android KitKat 4.4 is more stable in comparison to the latest iOS.
The study reports are based upon the crash rates of both the OS. The report from Crittercism are derived by surveying nearly 1 billion users over a period of one month and the results have turned to be in favor of Android. iOS 6,7.0 and 7.1 showed a crash rate of 2.5%, 2.1% and 1.7% respectively whereas its competitor Android performed much better with all versions from 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich showed just 0.7% crash rate.
Crittercism says that tablet versions of apps tend to be less stable than their smartphone counterparts, an area where Android developers are lagging behind iOS ones. This means that Android should see even more of an improvement as more developers optimize their apps for tablet usage. In case of devices, Samsung’s Android powered devices are found to be more stable both smartphones and tablets.
