Free Apps Drain Your Battery
Posted By Microsoft Guru on 20-03-2012 in the Blog Category Daily Blogs
It’s been revealed in
today’s news reports that free apps on smart phones do drain battery life
faster. The study has found that in one case, three quarters of the apps energy
was used to power advertising around the game, rather than the game itself. The
study that the report refers to used the 3G network to test energy levels and
concluded that, because they were free, there was very little that could or
would be done to improve the situation in the future.
Many free apps use
heavy advertising in their games to encourage users to buy extra content or new
games similar to the ones they are playing.
