Abstract

Developers adopt code comments for different reasons such as document source codes or change program flows. Due to a variety of use scenarios, code comments may impact on readability and maintainability. In this study, we investigate how developers of 5 open-source mobile applications use code comments to document
their projects. Additionally, we evaluate the performance of two machine learning models to automatically classify code comments. Initial results show marginal differences between desktop and mobile applications.
