Amazon App Sale Targets Android Power Users


If you’re looking to start peeking under the hood of your Android smartphone and begin tinkering with its inner-workings, you’re going to need the right tools. While many of the ones you’ll want are available free-of-charge, sometimes the right man for the job is a paid app. Amazon is currently promoting a handful of such power-user apps, giving you the chance to get them for half-price or better.

One of the most useful of these offered as part of Amazon’s aptly-titled “Geek Week” promotion is SetCPU, a powerful tool for over- and under-clocking your smartphone’s processor. The brave of heart can squeeze out some extra performance from their phones, while users looking to cut down on battery consumption can scale back the breakneck speeds. Here, you’ll be able to buy the app for a buck.

Root Explorer is another user-favorite, letting Android owners with rooted phones dig through the hidden-away bits of the operating system, giving you the chance to make some really low-level adjustments (or just promptly crash your phone, if you don’t know what you’re doing).

Besides that pair, Amazon also has the apps Easy Tether, WidgetLocker, Wave Launcher, RepliGo Reader, Xtralogic Remote Desktop Client, and BackupEverything on sale.
