Mobile User Behavior Analysis
Hui-Yin Wu
With the rapid evolution of mobile devices, the usage patterns of applications on these devices also change over time. Recently, the topic of how user behavior and usage patterns of applications has adapted to the “new” mobile devices such as smart phones has attracted much attention. In this work, we have developed an experimental platform that can log and analyze all user operations on a smart phone used in everyday context over long periods of time. The collected data are transmitted to a server periodically whenever Internet connection is available. Analytic tools such as charting, log query, and real-time log pattern analysis have also been developed to facilitate the study of user behavior. In this paper, we will illustrate the functionalities of the proposed platform through several examples and a sample case study.
