A recent study performed by KS Mobile, makers of the Battery Doctor app, found camera app Camera360 Ultimate as the top battery sucking Android app. Other popular battery sucking apps in the list are Microsoft's Outlook and the addictive game Candy Crush Saga.

KS Mobile tested which Android apps trigger a warning to smartphone users about their own battery consumption levels with the highest frequency. Camera360 Ultimate app which has nearly 180 million users world wide was the top app in the list. In second place was Microsoft's app. The app which has "8 different color themes to personalize your experience," is the reason for your phone's low battery.

The third and fourth spot is taken by EZ Weather Forecast and Widget and TV and movies app Viki respectively. Other Android apps on the list include walkie-talkie app Zello PTT, gaming app Temple Run 2, Imo free video calls and text. Games like Racing Moto, Fruit Ninja and Candy Crush Saga are also on the list.

KS Mobile says that users should practice "smart battery preservation." The reports suggest users should disable automatic time zones and clock updates; reducing the frequency of push notifications and turn the GPS off when not required. The report also says that users should charge their smartphone through a power outlet instead of a USB port.

According to Yahoo's top searched list of 2013 Candy Crush Saga is among the top ten, along with Kate, William and the royal baby George top the list of searches followed by Miley Cyrus on the second spot.
