[iPhone] Why are the top iOS apps so buggy?

Facebook and Words With Friends have to be some of the buggiest apps I've ever used. Yet, the coding doesn't have to be written for a multitude of devices like it does for Android, for example. Words With Friends crashes all the time, on different iOS devices, even after reinstalling, and even after updates. Same with Words With Friends. Why do companies with so much money and resources have so many persistent problems with their apps?

When Facebook first did the complete rewrite on their app (last summer), I found it worked much better than the original version. Since then, it's gotten slower and slower and crashes more and more frequently (although it's the speed that bothers me, not the crashing, which isn't very often).

Perhaps others aren't experiencing this, but it's been driving me crazy. If it is indeed a FB issue, then it makes no sense that a company like that would release such crap. If it's only me, then nevermind.

Weird, I use WwF several times a day and I can't recall the last time it crashed on me...

It's slightly better after the last update, but will still crash randomly on me.

Crashes about 10% of the time for me. And the last several updates all promised faster game loading and I've not noticed any improvement at all.

It happened to me a few times. I deleted it and reinstalled it and the crashing stopped.
