Not so fast, Kris. Network operators hate the growing capex. They are under a constant pressued to come up with a clever "data plan" package to sign up more subscribers, and yet they don't want caught flat footed by some surprise apps consuming lots of signaling in their network.

But the network providers will be happy if some apps use lots of bandwidth...consumers wil pay for it eventually...it remind me of Intel-Microsoft strategy of selling bloated software so you have to buy next gen just to keep up

Ha, ha, good one, kris!

Seriously, though, this report isn't just for consumers or for apps designers. It goes to the heart of the matter for those who are designig network gear, I believe. Take a look at those apps on the "watch list."

Those apps, once they catch on, could change what the next-gen communication equipment need to handle -- almost overnight.

So we need an app to analyze all apps we have, correct?

Smart how the study divides apps into four areas. I hope app developers are reading this.

Culprit of network congestion and battery drain

As a consumer, we are mindful of which apps keep our phones running very hot. We've had our own suspicions... But this might be the first time we are seeing analytics on mobile apps' misbehavior -- in the form of rankings. It tells us which mobile apps are costing networks' bandwidth, consumers' battery and apps developers' chances to get bundled in the operators' packages.
