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.
