The use of mobile devices and the complexity of their software continue to grow rapidly. This growth presents significant challenges for software correctness and performance. In addition to traditional defects, a key consideration are defects related to the limited resources available on these devices. Resource leaks in an application, due to improper management of resources, can lead to slowdowns, crashes, and negative user experience.
