Keep Track of Your CPU, Device Sensors, and Colors with S Tools+
Pretty much everyone reading this article can be considered a power user. And what do power users love? We long to know as much as humanly possible about everything in the world around us. Now thanks to XDA Forum Member naman14‘s new app S Tools+, we can at least get part of the way there.
S Tools+ is a collection of some rather useful, though slightly unrelated, utilities. The application displays your CPU frequency (and how much time was spent at any given speed), a full sensor data readout from all of the sensors on your device, a color picker to find the color value (both RGB and hex) for any image, a digital compass, and information about your device itself. Essentially, S Tools+ serves as the Swiss Army Knife of the Android app world in that it can accomplish quite a few tasks, and it takes up minimal space while doing so.
You can get started with S Tools+ by visiting the application thread.
