In this report from Apteligent we analyse mobile app crashes during interactions with cloud services. We compare the failure rates on iOS and Android, dive into which App Store categories are the most affected by networking issues, and most importantly analyse why these issues occur at such an alarming rate in the first place.

Performance, Performance, Performance

Our analysis showed that certain external factors do influence the network crash rate, including OS version, app store category, and cloud service provider. We also found that certain external factors do not influence the likelihood of network crashes; for example, we found no meaningful difference among specific network carriers. We did, however, discover clear signals coming from latency, data received, and request speed.
