Interesting research ! I thought all apps must consume similar battery but the result of research sows something else. It has been said that angry birds consumes more battery then other apps , so angry birds lover has to watch that out .I know they can't avoid it .can they ?

all this time I thought it was just my backlight and cpu processing that was doing all the draining but this makes so much sense. lazy devs
