Have any of you heard of Sidebar? You can get it from the Play Store. I just realized that you can actually use it in Ext. Power Save Mode. This allows access to any app that you desire.

Have fun!

EDIT: Well, this is interesting....I was able to test benchmarks while in EPS using the Sidebar app. I always thought that the EPS mode wasn't as conservative as I would like...take a look at these comparative benchmark results.

Regular:

EPS:

EPS:

I don't know about any one else, but I can say that I have seen more battery drain during EPS than the regular PS. Any thoughts?

No. Sidebar Lite is what you need to look for.
