Android apps crash less often than iOS ones, according to a report.

A new report conducted by Crittercism revealed that iOS apps crash more frequently than that of Android apps.

While the study shows that crashing occurs less with new versions of operating systems, Android has the overall lowest crash-ratio for mobile OSs.

Android KitKat 4.4, Jelly Bean 4.3, and Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 all crash about 0.7 per cent of the time, while apps running on the dated Gingerbread 2.3 end in an error 1.7 per cent of the time.

Meanwhile Apple sees the fewest crashes on its latest iOS 7.1 – with the previous iOS 6 crashing 2.5 per cent of the time and iOS 7 at 2.1 per cent.

Ranked by devices, the iPhone 5 is Apple’s strongest candidate only crashing 1.7 per cent of the time although the Samsung Galaxy S4 takes lead with just a 0.9 per cent crash rate.
