It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
Manage Your CPU with CPU Adjuster
There are a variety of ways users can control their CPUs. This includes a variety of apps like SetCPU, tools like Daemon Controller, and scripts like CPU Editor Script—each with a shared set of core functions with a few unique features. There is now a new CPU app out there for root users.
The app is called CPU Adjuster, and it was released by XDA Recognized Developer bartito. It works on Android 2.2 and up. And while it is recommended for root users, there is actually some functionality for non-root users. If you aren’t rooted, the app will display your CPU stats. If you are rooted, the feature list is much longer:
- CPU governor
– Max CPU Frequency
– Min CPU Frequency
– Second CPU state (only tegrak dual core at this moment)
– CPU voltages for all frequencies (if kernel supported)
– I/O Scheduler
– GPU frequencies and voltages (if kernel supported)
– Charger voltages (if kernel supported)
You can define profiles that are automatically activated on these conditions:
– Battery low
– Temperature higher
– Screen on/off
– Connected to PC
– Voice call started
This is an excellent app if you’re looking for an alternative to the ones you may already be using, or if you just want to try something new. It’s available for free in the Google Play Store. There is also an active effort to get it translated to other languages. So if you’re not a native English speaker, then keep an eye out for translation updates.

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
