Internals allows you to keep an eye on your device stats - 50 copies up for grabs!

By Michael Hepples on 24 Aug 2010 09:18 am EDT

Internals is a new application for those who feel the need to monitor their device stats, from the same company that brought you AntennaGate. Building on the premise of AntennaGate, they have expanded the idea into a full device monitoring application, covering battery, app memory and storage memory in addition to signal strength. This information can be used as a great diagnostic for your usage, giving you clues aboutwhat apps are eating up your battery life, or taking up app memory. Each "meter" has it's own set of options, allowing you to drill down to specifics by setting different refresh rates or view different information about the function you are monitoring. For example, thebattery display allows you to see a graph of your charge, the battery temperature, or the voltage output. Clicking the "report" function will show you an entry by entry log of the information displayed on the graph in text form. Users looking to beta test applications could find this to be an invaluable tool for sending feedback, enabling them to accurately display their memory and battery usage while testing a new build. I used it over the weekend to do some device optimization, ditching a couple of battery and memory heavy apps that were slowing me down. Available in the CB store for $7.99.

Contest: We have 50 copies of Internals to give away! Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won't count.

If only I could find our what apps are draining my memory on my storm 1. Hope this new app can help me track the bad boy

Great to see this -- would love to use it to finally debunk some of the phony "memory cleaners" that sell like hotcakes (like snake-oil?).

Hope to win a copy!

That would be nice to have this app I would love to know what's going on with my phone so I don't charge so much so help me out hook me up with this app.

I love to monitor my device stats and see the different effects apps have on my Blackberry. Love the drill down feature too. This app would do the trick! Looks awesome!!!

After spending $200 on my Torch it looks like this would be a great Match to ignite it and help out with my apps eating away at my battery!
Thanks to CrackBerry

Now I know how this app will totally work out for me.

I like monitoring things. I'm always keeping an eye on my fuel efficiency meter and my memory! Can't remember how many times I've not needed to patch my BB to the latest OS but I still did it - just for the heck of whether my free memory will increase!

I think this application would help the folks who try out many different applications or who are always on the blackberry. This application would help to find out why the battery life and memory of the unit is the way it is.

Just what i need at the moment my internal memory keeps getting below 5 MB...need to know whats consuming so much memory cause bb is running slow

Sounds cool, but why $7.99? I'm sure it's a slick application, but is it really worth $8?

Tell ya what--give me a copy, and I'll let you know if it's worth $8. Deal? Good.

I want this please. The performance of my torch 9800 is killing me since morning. Need this to monitor what is going wrong... :(

Some say that our beloved berries have crappy internals... To me they are the best in the world and I would love to be able to monitor their health with this cool app :)

I've been looking for something like this. I always want to know what's running and what's using memory and battery. I want a copy.

I get bad signal all the time at work now and 1 or 2 places at home. I would love to have the ability to map this out. Sounds like a wonderful app, would really like to test this out/review it.

My girlfriend is always nagging me, "whats up with your phone?". Winning a copy of this I can start giving her real technical answers. I would love to win a cop of this. Thanks.
