Crittercism: application on iOS 8 “fall” is 5 times more than Android 4.4




Mobile applications “fall” on the new iOS platform 8 is much more common than in previous versions of Apple’s operating system of the sixth and seventh generations. This is reported by analysts of the company Crittercism, who studied the stability of the software on the “apple” of the operating system. The experts concluded that the “fall” of applications on iOS 8 occur 5 times more often than on Android.


Malfunctions in the iOS 8 are almost twice as likely compared to iOS 7.1 – 3.56% of cases. In this case, less stable software runs on the iPhone previous generations. If the iPhone 6, the figure is 2.63%, and for the iPhone 6 Plus – 2,11%, that for the iPhone 4, 5s, 5c and 5 – on average 3.57%. Frequency of the “downs” applications in iOS and 8 above and compared with published in 2012, iOS 6, in which it was 2.5%.

According to analysts, the increased failure rate due to too many software innovations in the “eight”. “In iOS 8 4000 the company introduced a new programming interface (API), which is twice more than in iOS 7” – says Crittercism. In addition, the experts pointed to the emergence of a new programming language Swift, created by Apple. Initially, any new language increases the number of failures, and should be ready for it, the company noted.


According to a study on the Android 4.4 takes 0.7% of unintentional closing apps on iOS 7.1 – 1,6%. It is logical that the older versions of both systems show the worst results. Perhaps this is so for the reason that application developers do not seek to optimize their work on previous versions. Android 2.3 showed the result of 1.7%.

Crittercism collects data on the basis of observations in nearly a billion users, the number of analyzed events every day was about $ 3 billion.
