Reduce App space

Technology Inceptions

New software developed by researchers at Purdue University helps reduce the space taken by mobile apps installed in a smartphone. The 'AppStreamer' software 'streams' software data and code resource to an app from a cloud server when necessary. This allows the app to only use the space it needs on a phone at any given point of time, according to Saurabh Bagchi, a Purdue University Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. It cuts down storage requirements by at least 85% for popular gaming apps on an Android. The software seamlessly shuffles data between an app and a cloud server without stalling the game. Most study participants didn’t notice any differences in their gaming experience while the app using AppStreamer. AppStreamer is a type of software known as middleware, located between the apps on a device and the operating system. The middleware automatically predicts when to fetch data from a cloud server.
