I’m hopeful that Apple making per-app battery usage visible to the end user in iOS 8 will be the push that developers need to start paying closer attention to how their apps consume power, and when.

The times we live in… Local markets are turning into cell phone storage units that sell produce and candy on the side.
The future is here.
