CPU Information app unlocks Android mysteries


I paid a lot of money for my new phone, partly because it came with a fast processor and plenty of data storage. But I can't tell tell you how fast my CPU is running or how much of that storage is being used at any given time.

Well, I could look it up, but that would require a lot of poking around to find the right reporting tool.

What I would prefer is a single app that would calculate and report all of the important metrics that impact my phone's performance and make that information easily accessible.

Android users can install an app that does just that. It's called CPU Information. It gathers performance data from every corner of your phone and arranges all of the available reports in ring of icons. Think of it as the one ring to rule them all.

Touch the CPU icon and you get details on the chip's architecture, usage stats and clock measurements.  The RAM report tells you about memory demand, buffers and cache while the storage report calculates the size and available space on internal drives and memory cards.

Other reports look at the phone's display screen, camera, graphics processor, SIM card, Wifi connection and battery.  It will even tell you how much power is being used by the phone's accelerometer and magnetometer. And the developers say more features will be added in the coming months.

The app is available as a free download in the Google Play Store.
