Because iOS smartly closes and hides the evidence. Happened many times to me to be honest. The fruit is a master in cheating people.

Better to hide and keep running smoothly than to force me to push a button to close or to pull my battery out.

None of that happened with iOS.

I've seen iPhones completely frozen up before. Even newer ones. There's a reason for the hard reset feature on them.

And I'd also prefer that I get an error report back that lets me know what's stopped working. That way I get the option (sometimes) to report the issue directly when it happens.

Android respects its users enough to let them know what's going on.

Oh, and I can't remember the last time anything force closed on me.

Android care so much for devs that users can send them an idea of what the error is about so its easy for them to fix the issues ;) and reduce force closes

You would rather that they try to lie and hide problems that your device is having? Wow, I wish I could live in a false state of mind like you. "Nothing is wrong with the world, everything is perfect, everything is peaceful!" lol seriously, wake up and realize you live in the Matrix! jk.

Honestly though, I would rather have a device that tells me there is an issue and allows me to send a report on it. Then just get a black screen back to the homescreen. Try reporting that to your Apple care customer service. "There is no problem" is what they will tell you. Then they fix it behind your back anyway.

Ok...I can setup a Windows OS to not do error reporting. Dont know about other desktop OS's...

Thats basically what Android is doing with the FC message. Error reporting.

Android Force Closes are most of the time not even the it's own fault. If you ever read the update notes on the android market for apps, almost all of them state "fixed force closing issues for so and so devices". Different UI skins, different android version, and different type of processors can lead to issues that aren't Android's fault but the developer needing to fix them so they can run better on different devices.

or how about when they start crying about how they goto a site and need flash or how come the apps all cost money on the iPhone.

I hear all the time "I thought the iPhone is the best phone out, how come it doesnt do this or that? My EVO did."

how about the "i just cant click on my favorite song and make it a ringtone?" Umm no, there are steps for that, and an average phone user might as well forget about it.

Uahaha! The question is put the wrong way! It should be: "Is there a platform, which crashes more than Handroid?" LOL!

Why do I need an article, when I use Android, iOS and Symbian at the same time. I can see by myself, mate. "Force close" is Android's favorite command...

This guys seen to disagree.... yo have any clue what a crash is? Also what apps you have in symbian at all? I mean aside from those laggy Java apps

Hahah, maan what Java(we''re in 2012!)On Nokia N8 with Anna(soon with Belle) I have the same apps, that I have on my Droid(Desire). Almost every day the ''great'' Android force closes, due to weather widget, game, etc.

1. How old is your desire ?
2. A desire is not a Droid
3. What version of the OS you are running?
4. Java apps still exist and are available my friends N900 had them
5. Have you tried apps from a dev that checks and updates its apps ?
6 can you list all your Android apps that exists on sybian that give you issues?

Im sorry but a friends of mine (reader here too) did the change to a galaxy S2 and he couldn't be happier

Read much? IOS just doesn't tell you the app force closed, it just closes and goes to the home screen. And, as we now know by scientifically collected data, it does it more often than Android.

But, the real story here is that both operating systems are very stable, with very low percentages of crashing apps. Excellent news for consumers - we have more than one great choice.
