Innovative App Tracks SmartPhone Battery Life

An innovative mobile app known as You++ has earned Michigan State University computer science senior Angela Sun a national award.

Sun, of Canton, Michigan, was one of three women recently honored by the National Center for Women & Information Technology and HP as inaugural winners of the NCWIT Collegiate Award.

The first-ever NCWIT Collegiate Award encourages women undergraduates to persist in computing majors by recognizing their impressive innovations.

Sun was honored for YOU++, a mobile application that allows Android users to discover patterns that affect their battery life such as the amount of time spent on apps, most-used apps and the number of times a phone is accessed in a day.

Sun is a research student in the Systems and Security Lab in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.

She is spending this summer as one of only 30 product-manager interns at Google in California.
