October 1, 2010: We fixed the following errors in the Table 2 of our OSDI paper:
(1) Moved "Barcode Scanner" to the "Camera only" row. See our letter to the author of the Barcode Scanner application.
(2) Renamed "Layer (Productivity)" to "Layar (Lifestyle)".
(3) Added a footnote to the "Applications" header that says, "Listed names correspond to the name displayed on the phone and not necessarily the name listed in the Android Market".
(4) Moved "3001 Wisdom Quotes Lite" to the "(Productivity)" category in the same row.
