Detailed profiling energy consumption method is essential for developing applications. Existing methods are able to estimate each method of an Android application. However, these methods cannot profile in terms of GUI (graphical user interface). In this paper, we propose an estimating energy consumption method for each GUI component of Android applications. Our proposed method inserts probes before and after the processes for each GUI component. The Estimated energy is calculated from the logs that recoded at the probes. We also present an automatic probing scheme utilizing data-flow analysis and searching source codes.
