Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen.

CPU Usage & Frequency Monitor (Dual Core Support)
As first dual core processors are arriving, so the apps optimized for them. Because of this, having an app to monitor both cores is becoming more of a necessity. With this in mind, XDA member optic76 shows CPU usage monitor, which has been optimized to have low overhead and memory footprint. It displays in the status bar and is compatible with Dual CPU core which is a must these days. The developer warns that some dual core devices do not use both cores all the time so when your device is using one core, the app reports this status until load increases to the point where your device starts using the 2nd core.. The application can be found for free with ads on the market.
If you are using it, please let the developer know about any bugs so they can be fixed on future versions.

While Cyanogen, Inc has been the source of many headlines lately, there seems to be a lot of confusion regarding the differences between Cyanogen, Inc and CyanogenMod developers, as well as Cyanogen OS and the CyanogenMod ROM that so many XDA users love. The entities surrounding each of these are sometimes different and sometimes intertwined. We’ve gotten messages and comments requesting for a clearer distinction between these for future reference, which is why we are writing this feature. Let’s start...
