An interactive approach to mobile app verification

Osbert Bastani, Saswat Anand, Alex Aiken
2015 Proceedings of the 3rd International Workshop on Mobile Development Lifecycle - MobileDeLi 2015  
We use abductive inference to minimize the instrumentation, and interact with the developer to ensure that only unreachable code is instrumented.  ...  Our verification process successfully discharges 11 out of the 12 false positives in a corpus of 77 Android apps.  ...  Conclusion We have described an approach for interacting with an auditor (or developer) to eliminate false positives in static analysis.  ...

QDroid: Mobile Application Quality Analyzer for App Market Curators

Jemin Lee, Hyungshin Kim
2016 Mobile Information Systems  
Low quality mobile applications have damaged the user experience. However, in light of the number of applications, quality analysis is a daunting task.  ...  For that reason, QDroid is proposed, an automated quality analyzer that detects the presence of crashes, excessive resource usage, and compatibility problems, without source codes and human involvement  ...  To prove the proposed approach, QDroid was implemented on a popular mobile platform and 67 apps collected from an official app market.  ...
