    "Inside the guts of CPU"

    This is just an app for monitoring, you can't modify nor your CPU frequency either any other parameter. You can check how much time CPU spends in each frequency state. Your CPU isn't always at highest performance: its frequency varies depending on the process you're executing. For example, you're in lower CPU frequency when airplane mode than over WiFi. You're in the lowest CPU frequency levels when, what's more, display is off.

    CPU Spy shows 6 states: 1000Mhz, 800Mhz, 400Mhz, 200Mhz, 100Mhz and deep sleep. What's more it sows how many time you spend in each frequency and how much it represents out of the total. It also shows total state time and kernel info. You can reset/restore timers anytime.

    In summary, an useful tool to keep track of what's going on your device's heart. Recommendable.

    This is a simple app to display the time the CPU spends in each frequency state. This can be a useful tool in diagnosing battery problems or tweaking your over-clock settings.

    It also displays the current kernel information.
