Simple and useful. I had a power problem with my transformer prim and with this I was able to track it down to a live wall paper. It was easy just refresh timers and change a few settings. And most importantly it lets me know if it was asleep or if there was something running. I would like it to show all 5 processors and usage on them but I think that would be out of the simple design that is here. For the apps simple interface and no nonsense I give it a 5.
Won't work on stock HTC kernels Although CPU Spy needs a rooted HTC phone, it also requires custom ROMs with non stock HTC kernel for it to read the CPU states. Unfortunately stock HTC kernels don't supply this information for CPU Spy to read from, so unless you've flashed your phone or tablet with a custom kernel, don't blame the developer if doesn't work. CPU Spy works fine with my previous HTC Incredible S and Flyer P510e with custom ROMs, but not with leaked or official ICS Android OS that use original HTC kernels.
Simple Small And No Permissions Application CPU Spy is a simple, small application that reads the processor state since the last reboot and displays them on your screen. It can identify at what clock speeds your system tends to run at. The application requires no special permissions so it isn't stalking your friends as you check your processor clock speeds.
Must needed app This app had always helped me to identify battery drain issues at first level. If your phone doesn't get to deep sleep mode,there's some issue for sure. I've identified a few such apps and uninstalled them and now the battery life is much better. Though there are lot of battery saver apps, this app is something which an user will need at any point in time when he wants to debug battery drain issue.
Excellence is nothing without application I generally don't rate apps, but this guy is amazing. Helped me checking CPU status, operating conditions and importantly deep sleep. you think your phone is not working properly? Check with it.
Love it! You know Google at some point you're going to lose all your 'friends' when the market gets tired of your scam with Samsung. Hopefully an enterprising ethical company will step in with a device that operates with a lot more integrity. To coin a phrase "just sayin", enjoy it while you can cuz even OS challenged individuals like myself eventually figure out why they use 30 GB just playing Candy Crush.
-Display total state time
-Massive code cleanup
-Fix duration overflow bug
-Removed read-as-root attempt when unable to access states file due to instability
-Better tablet support (still work to do, though)
