Nonsense. You're not using it right. Since iOS 5, there has been iCloud, allowing you to backup your data into the cloud. Some games also allow you to save your games directly into the cloud, so that you can even share them between multiple devices. There is also over-the-air update (I think you mean that with in-place upgrade) that let you just do it all from the device itself. Apple was late to the party with this, but it's been available for a while now.

The problem is that iOS devices are a little more restrictive with access to your data. The tools are there, though, but you gotta use them. Used to be through USB with iTunes (iExplorer is pretty cool, too, as previously mentioned), now it's easier on WiFi. Transfer purchases => Backup => Restore with latest version. Done in 10 minutes time.

P.S. Also, obviously you want to upgrade iTunes to the latest version.

P.P.S. I don't remember the App Store app ever crashing on me.

P.P.P.S. I am not an Apple apologist.

P.P.P.P.S. Really, I'm not!
