Actually, I think the Lounge is better suited, as we've usually kept iOS/Android comparisons there.

The results seem very reasonable. Looking at the original Forbes source for the Phandroid article, we see that the data are normalized, and both cite what would seem to be a valid metric to ensure proper sample size - over 214 million app launches were monitored.

I posted this as a lark in another thread and was surprised to find that not everyone knows that iDevices can lock up with a bad app, and I suspect that many people have never considered this as a difference in the two competing operating systems.
