Abstract: Optimizing mobile apps early on in the development cycle is supposed to be a key strategy for obtaining higher user rankings, more downloads, and higher retention. However, little research has been done with respect to identifying and understanding actual optimization practices performed by developers. In this paper, we present the results of three empirical studies aimed at investigating practices of Android developers towards improving apps performance, by means of micro-optimizations.
