Looking to calibrate my iPhone's battery. Do you know any apps that really will just simply use a lot of memory?

Thanks

I wrote an app called Gauge Mathematical Tool that would be perfect for this. You can use it to calculate up to 10 Million digits of Pi, which as you would expect, really stresses the processor and memory, leading to short battery life. It can also be used as a benchmark to compare the speeds of two iPhones or iPod touches.

There's a link in my signature to its app store page.

Fire up the Maps App and let the GPS do it's thing. The battery should die in less than 2 hours.

If you don't have a 3GS then video or gaming is a good way to kill the battery too.

lol, yea, probably.
Streaming MLB games from MLB At Bat would hurt my battery quick. Other streaming such as radio from Pocket Tunes or the ESPN Radio app will knock it down somewhat quickly too. These apps will cause my iPhone to get pretty hot too. I just heard about (and got) the UStream Viewing app today. I'm sure that would cause it to go down quick.
