Download Wisely: Intelligent Recommendation System for Google Play Applications

Yujuan Jiang

Every time when you want to download an application from Google Play, how do you choose the hearted one out of overwhelming applications with similar features.

Some of you might say: “Look at the ratings!”

Yes. The rating can reflect the satisfaction of customers to some extent. However, is it the perfect ruler to measure all aspects like quality, energy consumption, and user experience?

It’s not that easy!

For example, do you know Google rating accumulates across all versions of an application? This may make you miss some great new applications. Furthermore, the rating does not necessarily reflect the performance and quality of an application.

Saborido et al. have proposed an approach (ADAGO) to help users choose an optimal application set with the best trade-­‐off among rating, data usage and energy consumption.
