Keep Tabs on Your CPU’s Frequencies With CPU Spy for Android

If you are into playing with the settings that control the hardware and performance of your Android device, you are more than likely familiar with overclocking applications like SetCPU. Having said that, you probably have set a nice profile that would give you great performance as well as great battery life. However, do you know exactly what your processor is actually doing? XDA member storm717 had this idea that he put into an application where he could monitor the frequencies at which the processor runs at any given time and more importantly, for how long. The app will also display information as to which kernel is being used. Information like this can help end users evaluate kernels even before trying them.

Give this app a shot and as always, if you are overclocking your device, be careful as it has potential risks associated with doing this. Please leave some feedback.

Created a simple app to display the time the CPU spends in each frequency state and the current kernel build. May be useful to some… especially people running OC’ed kernels.

Also useful to confirm which kernel you’re currently running.

You can find more information in the application thread.

Dual Boot on Android: A Power User’s Holy Grail?

Many of you probably dual-boot your personal computers, be it to run Linux alongside Windows or because you have a Mac and hate OS X. On a computer platform, the process can be a life-saver for a variety of reasons, particularly software compatibility/integration. It’s not rare to see computer programmers with Linux partitions or Mac gamers that use bootcamp for their videogames. On computers, the process has gotten relatively simpler over time, with Microsoft and Apple typically supporting the notion....

Chrome 42: Narrowing the Gap Between Web & Native Apps

Websites have typically been less desirable than native apps, due to being unoptimized for mobile screens, responsiveness issues or simply not being able to provide all the features you might desire.
