    Is there a way to tell which apps are using most of your cpu or battery life? Maybe there is an application for it or something?

    Thanks

    System Panel Lite is what I use. To chart usage, buy the paid version and you can really get some stuff done.

    Either of the methods above work, and I utilize both.

    I use Battery Left app. Select the History button, then select "other usage" and pick "Partial Wake usage" or "Network Usage" or "CPU Usage" and see which applications are at the top of each list. Usually just one will be the big one.

    I like System Pannel, you can see whats running, check your cpu, memory and storage amounts, view the battery level and temperature, and kill an app if its causing problems. Very useful.

    +1 for BatteryLeft. You can see exactly which apps are using which features (GPS, Network, CPU) or keeping the phone awake (Partial Awake Usage).

    Much more info than the stock battery info screen, which lumps everything together.
