Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite iconFixing Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite app crashes works in the same way as it does for Notes app crashes and Exchange mail syncing bugs: The Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite app crashes (e.g. “Mail quit unexpectedly“) are fixed by deleting cashes of the dedicated app library containers. For example, the App Store app and Dropbox app reportedly crashes after upgrading to Yosemite (Kudos to Apolonious!). Mail app and Skype crashes are resolved as well.
