Optimize Games and Apps for Android
Mobile app performance is a key design criteria when developing console/PC quality games for mobile as users expect a consistently high frame rate with no lag. Testing across a full range of high to low-end Android devices is therefore a must for maximizing both the player experience and game monetization. Arm Mobile Studio offers free mobile app development tools for analysis of app performance across mobile devices and for importing that data directly into a continuous integration workflow. For efficient monitoring, Arm Mobile Studio includes:
- Performance Advisor - Intuitive summary reports pinpoint problem areas and cut down profiling time
- Streamline - For deeper analysis of GPU and 32 and 64 bit CPU counters, profile your game to find bottlenecks and optimize code
- Graphics Analyzer - Analyze OpenGL ES and Vulkan API calls to determine exactly where rendering defects occur
- Mali Offline Compiler - Investigate shader kernels to understand performance on Mali GPUs
Features and Benefits
Kick-off your creation with your performance budget in mind and make sure it stays on track over time. Empower your entire development team with easy-to-interpret reports and timely performance insights for making effective content adjustments as they go.
Identify bottlenecks and pinpoint the exact location of your most expensive graphics, in standalone applications or in the leading game engines. Graphics application software code issues are quickly laid bare thanks to the broadest spectrum of performance data, covering everything from CPU to GPU, draw calls and more.
Your game runs efficiently on a high-end Android device, but how do you eliminate the risk of lag or overheating on another? Arm Mobile Studio lets you use off-the-shelf devices to determine game performance and shows where profiling would facilitate longer play and a more immersive experience.

Where Innovation and Ideas Come to Life
Analyzing the Performance of Unity Games
Streamline Performance Analyzer in Arm Mobile Studio provides a deep level of performance insight for Unity applications running on Arm-based Android devices. You can trace the impact of your code on both GPU and CPU performance to decide where to tune and how to reduce the impact of expensive assets. Use alongside Arm Graphics Analyzer for a whole system view of game performance.
Identifying Code Bottlenecks and FPS Changes
Arm Performance Advisor helps identify code bottlenecks during Android game development. Monitor FPS changes over time and see how the device handles CPU, fragment and vertex workloads. Investigate performance changes with knowledge of how the GPU is utilized and numbers of draw calls, primitives and pixels per frame in your content.
