Luís Cruz

High energy consumption is a challenging issue that an ever increasing number of mobile applications face today. However, developers still lack the knowledge and resources to ship energy efficient code. We analyzed a set of 1783 Android and iOS applications to study common practices for energy efficiency. Results show that the Android community is more energy-aware. We deliver the lessons learned in a catalog of 22 energy patterns — design patterns conceived to improve the energy efficiency of mobile applications. This presentation will cover some of these energy patterns as well as previous work in this topic.
