Abstract: The number of mobile apps and the number of mobile devices have increased considerably in the past few years. To succeed in the competitive market of mobile apps, such as Google Play Store, developers should improve the user-perceived quality of their apps. In this paper, we investigate the relationship between mobile device attributes and the user-perceived quality of Android apps. We observe that the user-perceived quality of apps varies across devices. Device attributes, such as the CPU and the screen resolution, share a significant relationship with the user-perceived quality. However, having a better characteristic of an attribute, such as a higher display resolution, does not necessarily share a positive relationship with the user-perceived quality. App developers should not only consider the app attributes but also consider the device attributes of the available devices to deliver high-quality apps. The original paper is published in the Empirical Software Engineering journal communicated by Lin Tan.
