    Are there any apps that will record what another app is doing? For example, when I use an app and it sends data, or receives data etc, is there a way for me to monitor what and how it's being done? Be it via wifi, sprint, to what servers, from what servers etc.

    I dont just need to know HOW the data is being sent, I need to know everything about it. From, to, ip's, url's, etc.

    Basically I want to see what an apps doing and possibly block certain things.

    droidwall - Project Hosting on Google Code

    REQUIRES ROOT ACCESS - Tested on a HTC G1 with JF and CyanogenMod ROMs
    Droid Wall - Android Firewall is a front-end application for the powerful iptables Linux firewall. It allows you to restrict which applications are permitted to access your data networks (2G/3G and/or Wi-Fi).
    This is the perfect solution if you don't have an unlimited data plan, or just wants to see your battery lasting longer.
    After installing, press menu and click Help for an explanation on how to use it."

    For monitoring, also check out System Panel and Spare Parts.
