This Indian Scientist Developed Software That Saves At Least 85% App Storage On Your Phone

AppStreamer is the new software developed to reduce app data on your phone by at least 85%, leaving more space for other important data.

It seems that no matter how much storage we have on our phone, it’s never enough as we are taking more and more photos, videos, while using more and more apps. Sometimes, the phone’s memory is just almost full and we already have to delete photos and even apps to free some space. Now, professor Saurabh Bagchi, an Indian origin scientist at Purdue University has come up with new software that can significantly reduce the app data on phones.

Indian Scientist Developed Software That Saves At Least 85% App Storage

The scientist led a research team to develop a software streaming technique to reduce the storage taken by install apps on your phone by at least 85 percent, giving you more space for other important data.

The software is called AppStreamer, which his study says beams app data from an online cloud.

Specifically, code and data resources are streamed to an application from a cloud server when you need to use the app, which enables the app to use the memory it needs on the phone only at certain times. He explained that this technique is similar to how Netflix doesn’t actually store films on your device but instead streams the content to users when they watch it. Professor Saurabh Bagchi is an alumnus of IIT Kharagpur.

The best thing about this software is that it also works for heavy apps like those related to graphics, video, or gaming. According to the professor, the software streams them instantly though there may be slowdowns and errors that likely emerge if the user’s network is crowded or patchy.

A description of AppStreamer in the journal Communications of the ACM, AppStreamer seamlessly transfers data between a cloud server and an app while not stalling the game.

Most of the study participants, who used the software, said that they did not notice differences in the gaming experience. The professor added that the software works for such heavy gaming apps, so it will definitely work for other applications that often take up much less storage.
