Crashed Apps May Be More Apple’s Fault Than Developers
Applications are failing left and right, suddenly jumping back to the home screen or freezing your iPhone entirely. If you’re anything like me, you probably sat there the first time thinking, “What? No.” It seems, however, that developers aren’t as much to blame as we first thought.
Force quitting the application or rebooting the phone oftentimes allow you to start the application fresh, but constantly forcing your iPhone into uncomfortable positions can get old, and quickly. Developers delved and pored into various crash logs and discovered that the fault lies not in the applications code, but with the 2.0 firmware that was claimed to be so ‘final’.
An increasing number of people are beginning to think that the new firmware is a highly unstable, and I’d have to agree with them. While the crash logs seem to be hidden somewhere in someone’s database, I’m going to have to side with other reporters and accept the word of veteran developers.
I call shenanigans on Apple, and it might not be the best idea to get too agitated with the new faces of development just yet.
