Achieving energy-efficient GUI designs

Experiences for designing GUIs have been accumulated over a long time without addressing energy efficiency. Moreover, the importance of these experiences changes from desktop GUIs to handheld GUIs. Based on the GUI energy characterization presented in this work, we offer some insights into energy-efficient GUI design, and compare them with the traditional do's and don'ts for GUI design [12].
