In my last post I showed you research on battery drain. This time I’ll give you a look at turning off chatty apps, both before and after using Trepn™ Profiler, a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
How Many Apps Are On Your Phone?
First, the math I showed you last time from Google I/O assumed 30 apps installed on a smartphone.
Does the Internet of Everything play a big role in your house yet? We’re hearing lots of use cases around the connected home, like regulating your use of electricity, switching your lights on and off remotely and having your appliances talk to one another.
Those are good ways to run your home wirelessly, but what about enjoying it wirelessly? What about having your music streamed wirelessly to different rooms in your house and controlling it from mobile devices?
Turn off chatty apps.
Seems simple, right? You’re constantly recharging your phone because you’re running apps that keep sending and receiving data, which consumes power. So turn off some of those apps.
But first you have to find them. Then you have to catch them red-handed. Those are the hard parts.
