As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
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.
