    Hi!

    I'm looking for an application that's equivalent to a linux "top" command. I could go to the terminal and launch 'top', but the screen is a tad small for the entire list. I found I got around this by doing a '-n x > foo.txt".

    I was really looking for something that lists all the running processes PLUS how much processor utilization they are using. It seems like there's a bunch of apps out there that will just list the running processes and allows you to kill them, but none that will let you actually view the numbers for the process utilization.

    thanks!

    adb = android debug bridge? Is there something else, such as an app, you can load up on the droid and have it run it on the phone, instead of having to connect it to a computer?

    thanks!

    not sure about an app for top, but there is an app for adb wireless...so you don't have to connect it to the computer with wires...and then just run a top through adb and the output will show on your computer screen
