Claim of US Patent No. 9,137,620

1. A method of operating a conformity analysis system comprising:
identifying restrictions on the use of resources of a wireless communication network by a wireless communication device having
applications available to the wireless communication device;

identifying a first application of the applications available to the wireless communication device that uses at least one
of the resources of the wireless communication network;

determining a first measure of conformity of the use of the at least one of the resources by the first application to the
restrictions on the use of the resources of the wireless communication network by the wireless communication device, wherein
the restrictions include a resource limit, which varies over time, on the amount of the resources of the wireless communication
network that can be used by the wireless communication device and wherein determining the first measure of conformity includes
a determination of whether the limit on the amount of resources of the wireless communication network at a first time satisfies
the resources required by the first application at the first time;

generating an instruction to display to a user an indication of the first measure of conformity, wherein the wireless communication
device displays an icon for the first application surrounded with a color indicator corresponding to the first measure of
conformity in response to the instruction, and wherein the icon for the first application causes execution of the first application
by the wireless communication device when selected by the user.
