Developers can't keep up with Google's nonsensical practice of dropping a new OS when most apps are still 2 OS's behind.
This is perhaps the blessing and curse that is Apple.
On one hand, people love apple because when they upgrade a newer iPhone (3Gs to 4s, say) they know that they will be able to use the phone, because the OS looks and, for the most part, acts exactly the same as all the previous "versions."
To me, and a lot of Android users, this is just too boring. I think the fact that Android updates are more monumental that Apples is the reason Android lovers love Android. Can you imagine if Android still looked and acted like Eclair (or even Froyo)? It's easy to simply say that developers can't keep up with Google's updates, but I have yet to run into any issues with App compatibility since switching to the GNex (and ICS) months ago...
Moral of the story: If you just want to feel comfortable with an OS, choose Apple. If you want an exciting, evolving OS, choose Android.
Whether one is more buggy than the other is a different story, and is dependent on the user.
