    Lag! It has haunted Android since its inauguration. More and more lag is becoming a mute issue in Android with the release of ICS and even less of an issue with the latest version of Android Jelly Bean! The overwhelming majority of Android users however are still rocking Gingerbread which just isn't as fluid. If you pick up an old Froyo device after using a Galaxy S III or a newer device running Jelly Bean you will instantly see the difference. Believe me you would notice. The fact is most of us don't remember the lag because back in the day we were bragging to our IOS buddies at how fast our DroidX was while they turned up their noses. Lag can still be an issue for those of you with older devices or some of you with mid teir or even cheaper devices. I know my 3 year old's new no name tablet could use some help for sure.

    Seeder is a new application that claims to solve the issue of Lag. Seeder fills up the entropy pool that would normally take the kernel a while to refill. I know that is just part of the explanation for how it supposedly works. You can head to the Play link for further explanation. The app is said to make app loading and task switching much faster. I will definitely be giving this app a try!

    YEAH!!! That's VERY interesting. Wouldn't it be neat to have the fluidity of Jelly Bean and with that ^ above, running on a D1?

    I hope this helps my ASUS TF101 tablet. I've had so many issues with getting the force close prompt while trying to scroll in the browser or in an email.

    We'll see, I was just wanting to do it to see how effective the app is, so if anyone else can confirm it I'd be content with that too. Doesn't seem like it's worth the hassle to fix the bootloop just for an app:D Boredom may get the better of me though

    You should give it a try on your current devices. Seemed to help my Gnex. Also, imoseyon has a patch for this in his latest lean kernel, 5.5. Hopefully soon, this will be included in ROMs

    Re: New SEEDER App Claims To Boost Performance On Any Android Phone

    Lag has many causes, not just from accessing the entropy pool.
    I've detailed lags caused by resource leaks causing low memory conditions resulting in excessive garbage collection in a number of postings in this (long) thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=126479

    I don't see how this app can help the lag in those situations.
    Only a reboot will help, until it happens again.

    If you try this out and like it you should buy it from the play store. I haven't noticed much of a difference since installing it on my MAXX HD

    i looked up different info on this, it's a placebo effect
    it makes everything use /dev/urandom as the entropy pool instead of /dev/random since /dev/urandom has more room than /dev/random
    problem is, just about everything you normally use already calls /dev/urandom so that part of the app does nothing
    any speedup is from the app process running every second or so making the cpu always be at a higher speed
