Efficient web caching in mobile apps eliminates unnecessary network traffic, reduces web accessing latency, and improves Smartphone battery life. However, recent research has indicated that current mobile apps suffer from poor implementations of web caching. In this paper, the authors first conducted a comprehensive survey of over 1000 Android apps to identify how different types of mobile apps perform in web caching. Based on their analysis, they designed CacheKeeper, an OS web caching service transparent to mobile apps for Smartphone's.
