If you’re in the market for a new phone right now, you have a tough choice to make: Apple’s iPhone XR, or the Google Pixel 3? The two phones have a lot in common. They both come in fun colors, have standout cameras, pack a ton of impressive features in a somewhat affordable package (or, at least, more affordable than some other options), and start shipping this month. In fact, the devices are so similar, the biggest question for most people will be not about the hardware, but about the operating system software: Apple iOS vs....

Purdue develops tool to reveal how to write apps that drain less battery

Posted by on 8:38 pm in Mobile Design | 0 comments

To send a text message, there are dozens of apps for that. So why does sending a message through Skype drain over three times more battery than WhatsApp? Developers simply haven’t had a way of knowing when and how to make their apps more energy-efficient. Purdue University researchers have created a new tool, called “DiffProf,” that uses artificial intelligence to automatically decide for the developer whether a feature should be improved to drain less battery and how to make that improvement, according to a press release....

Did Google just tell us that it’s getting rid of Android?

Posted by on 4:28 pm in Mobility Strategy | 0 comments

Google hardly had any surprises left for its Pixel 3 event earlier this week, especially when it comes to the stars of the show, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Both phones were thoroughly reviewed before Google took the stage on Tuesday, so we already knew what to expect from Google’s 2018 phones well in advance. But, as it turns out, Google left out a key element while introducing its latest toys, one that seems to support the idea that Android’s death is imminent. Android is the most popular mobile operating system out there, but Google didn’t...

AI tool can help develop apps that drain less battery

Posted by on 4:28 pm in Mobile Design | 0 comments

WASHINGTON: Scientists, including one of Indian origin, have created an artificial inteligence (AI) tool to help developers design smartphone apps that drain less battery. “DiffProf” — the tool designed by researchers at Purdue University in the US — automatically decides for the developer whether an app feature has room for improving energy efficiency. How a code runs can dramatically differ between two apps, even if the developers are implementing the same task. DiffProf catches these differences in the “call...

New iPhone XS Problems Damaging Apple’s Legendary Reputation

Posted by on 1:27 pm in Mobility Strategy | 0 comments

A long time ago, Apple declared that “it just works”. As more issues build up around iOS 12, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, that’s probably a good thing. Because a number of software errors in basic use cases show that “it just works” is more aspirational than you would expect. Tim Cook stands out as Apple loses its focus (Karl Mondon/Digital First Media/The Mercury News via Getty Images) Yes, software is hard, and to have some esoteric configurations throwing up errors when a handset rolls out to the public is to be expected – this...

Apple iOS 12.0.1 Release: Should You Upgrade?

Posted by on 11:00 am in Mobility Strategy | 0 comments

With iOS 12 Apple  got a lot right. Out the gate, it proved noticeably faster, more stable and more full of surprises than any iOS generational upgrade I can remember (even if the bar is low – 1,2,3). That said, it had flaws (one of which proved quite embarrassing) and iOS 12.0.1 is much needed. But does it create more problems than it solves?  Here’s everything you need to know about iOS 12.0.1… Apple iOS 12Apple Who Is It For? iOS 12.0.1 runs on every iOS 11 compatible device for which Apple deserves great credit. This means the...

AI lifeline to help devs craft smartmobe apps that suck a whole lot less… battery capacity

Posted by on 11:00 am in Mobile Design | 0 comments

Artificial intelligence can help developers design mobile phone apps that drain less battery, according to new research. The system, dubbed DiffProff, will be presented this week at the USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation conference in California, was developed by Charlie Hu and Abhilash Jindal, who have a startup devoted to better battery testing via software. DiffProf rests on the assumption that apps that carry out the same function perform similar tasks in slightly different ways. For example, messaging apps...
