Display Your Device Electric Current with CurrentWidget
If you’re interested in how much electric current your device is using from the battery or receiving from the charger, take a look at CurrentWidget. It may sound odd, but actually the widget can be used to monitor the currents of different builds as suggested by XDA forum member Matzemink.
The XDA member came across the widget and thought it was so useful that he posted the apk in the forums. Developed by Ran Manor, CurrentWidget refreshes at up to 30 second intervals. If you want to check the standby current, you can set the update interval to 1 minutes and leave your Android device for 10 minutes to check the standby current.
You must unplug the charger and it seems that a working battery driver is also required.

Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
