I'm on my 3rd android device (1.6 to 4.0) and had forced closes on all. I can't prove it's bad apps but I install a lot of them. There are advantages to IOS closed shop devices and apps but I prefer the android approach.
When I have problems I search the forums. Recently I removed the Google+ widget and may have solved a persistent "com.android.launcher is not responding". Lots of people recommend cache cleaners etc. but that does not find the original cause. Blaming the hardware or o/s is not useful. Odds are greater that it's an app hogging memory or cpu. The list of 4 things that cause problems posted above is right on.
