Even if mobile developers have ensured greater consistency in their apps, these apps keep crashing regardless of platforms. Whether it’s Android powered smartphone or Apple’s iPhone, apps do crash in them.
Some devices are complained for crashing apps more than others. On the other hand, some users hardly face app-crash in their devices. Does that mean devices are crashing apps? Yes, it’s true. But, it’s not the complete truth. Maximum crashes are caused by apps themselves. Let us try to discover some most widely known reasons causing app-crash:
The demand of an application
Success has disadvantages too. The more an app becomes successful, the more its demand increases and the more it is accessed by users. If an online app is not customized to handle heavy traffic, it will crash.
No or limited internet connectivity
Some apps are made for high speed internet like 3G or 4G but many users still use 2G or slower internet over their smartphones. Slow or limited internet connectivity can cause crashes.
Switching between internet networks
There are two ways available for mobile device accessing internet. First is mobile SIM based internet connectivity and second one is Wi-Fi. Users keep switching network connectivity between these two options, but it affects app’s stability. However, it’s not OS’ fault but mobile application developer can create better code to handle this problem.
These bugs are often created when new features are implemented and this case generally occurs with custom made applications. If the mobile developer is not able to provide right treatment to the development, the app will crash.
Badly Optimized front-end
Front-end of an app can too cause crash. It generally happens with poorly optimized apps. Developers need to create a perfect strategy harmonizing on-screen and device capabilities.
App-crash can also occur because of poor back-end integration that does not quickly respond to the requests of front-end. Apps with such back-end want data to perform their task but unfortunately, the back-end turns out to be inaccessible or slow. This condition creates instability and ultimately crashes the apps.
Some roughly coded apps can generate excessive sessions or bad queries which further halt their performance and finally cause crashes.
Cross browser compatibility
It happens with web based applications. Incompatible browsers can also crash applications. Here, web application developers need to customize their apps for supporting all the mainstream browsers.
App-incompatibility is quite infamous for devices having cheap hardware and are running on Android OS. Because Android is an open source OS, mobile device manufacturers are free to use this OS in low-end devices. But apps in these low-end smartphones often crash.
Too many apps
If your device has too many apps, they may cause crash to the functioning of each other.
Memory mismanagement can also cause crashes.
Ignoring OS or app update
To prevent app crash because of devices, users are advised to keep their apps or devices updated.
