    The importance of the power user for apps

    With 70% of app users abandoning service after the first use, Fast Company takes a look at the benefits of catering to a smaller niche of “power users”. This small but devoted population accounts for 76% of all time spent on the average app and they are often responsible for sharing a large share of site content and spreading the word to other potential users.

    Gaming energy consumption

    It seems that saving energy is easier when it’s a contest. At least that’s what several app makers are banking on. A slew of new Smartphone apps have recently hit the market that help folks stay focused on saving the planet – or at least reduce their emissions. GreenCharge is an app designed to help electric vehicle owners track and share their driving patterns, fuel savings, and environmental contribution. Quite smartly this customizable app syncs seamlessly with a user’s Nissan Lean or Chevy Volt To display up-to-date information (holding our breath for ZipCar to adopt). 
    In Germany, home metering is taking off with GreenPocket which “helps consumers share their carbon footprint in a competitive and entertaining way on Facebook.” It’s extremely well designed and thought through, integrating services with power providers and large business to provide energy consumption data analysis. Here in the US we’ve had consumer conservation focused non-gamed devices, like the Belkin Conserve Line, which doesn’t seem to be setting the world on fire. Maybe, like in other industries, gaming mechanics are the answer to sustained behavior change?
    Thanks  to Springwise for the inspiration
