The focus of this paper is the functionality of Android applications and the detection of functional anomalies though a basic static analysis approach. The intention of this research is analyzing applications without running them and detecting how application behavior might correlate with method call patterns. We will focus on simple free compass applications because their ostensible simplicity will make high variation in methods calls an interesting phenomenon. We employ clustering algorithms and other statistical methods to isolate a particularly unusual collection of applications and then perform a qualitative analysis of these applications to discover any interesting common operational behavior or functionality.
