Has anyone tried HTC Power to Give? This is a Seti@home client (plus other projects that run under boinc). It's crunching seti mods at a fair clip.

It only runs when battery is over (default) 90%, and not hot. Must be charging. You can pick how many cores to use, and by default it only runs while screen is off. So basically it just runs overnight while charging. Mine seems to run cool, so I think I am going to let it run for a few days and see how it goes. So far, I have processed a few mods and all is well.

So, this is an app that takes power and stores it?
besides good karma and being a good person, what benefit does this have?

In theory, you're helping power medical and scientific research. It's pretty much the folding@home project, but for android.

Ran it for a bit on my M8.
