Energy-efficiency of Mobile Applications

The dissertation of Claas Wilke, research assistent and PhD student at the TU Dresden, focuses on the energy-efficiency of mobile applications (apps) for smart phones and tablet PCs. The major idea is the comparison of mobile applications providing similar services w.r.t. their energy consumption. A central vision is the creation of an app store or market place that provides information on the energy consumption of all applications being sold via this market place.

For the motivational/introductory part of the dissertation he wants to include the opinion of real mobile application users, and want to investigate whether they really care about the energy consumption of mobile applications. Therefore, he is currently conduction a small online survey, consisting of 11 question, requiring about 5 to 10 minutes for completion.
