General Is there an app for finding which apps drain the battery the most?

    My battery seems to be draining about 1/3-1/2 faster than it normally does over the past week or so. I'm trying to figure out if it has something to do with any apps I've installed recently. Is there a way I can figure out which apps are doing the most damage to the battery?

    you can go to menu>setting>about phone> battery>battery use and see in there.

    or install spare parts and see which apps are causing the drain while your phone is idle.

    In my experience the built in Batter Use tool is not very accurate. I played Trap! for at least an hour today, and it does not list the app at all.

    I had the same problem not too long ago and found the battery draining culprit by checking the running services. I found that one of the services had been running for 30 hours straight. I uninstalled the app and all is back to normal.

    menu>setting>applications>services
