    Hey all,

    I've searched all over the Market and web for this, but to no avail. Is there an app that will monitor processes for CPU, GPS, and background data usage? I know that such an app would drain battery itself, but I don't really understand how I will identify which of my 30+ apps are causing battery drain. It's a bit disempowering not knowing which of all these apps is making that GPS icon flash.

    Basically I'm looking for the equivalent of Mac's Activity Monitor + Little Snitch monitor. Without such an ability, Android feels like a broken platform...

    Thanks!

    Thanks WA_Bob. I downloaded it and it doesn't accurately count the data for my Thunderbolt. Still don't have a way to monitor data, phone wakeup, or something solid to track CPU over time. And your app just depresses me by telling me I have 2.9 hours left on my 100%-battery Thunderbolt :)

    Is there maybe even a log file that has this?
