Recently this app slow my S3 to a crawl if I open it. I basically have to reboot to get my phone back. Think it happened on the first version that were supposed to work on unrooted devices. The 2.2.2 update did not change anything. And yes I have cleared data and cache. The S3 got left at Android 4.3
Root only. Accurate, easy, uncomplicated and truthful. This app (assuming rooted) is consistently high in accuracy and there's no unnecessary UI mish mash. Other so-called battery reporting apps are inaccurate and have a tendency to offer task killers that give 'firework displays' in colourful UI results purporting to have closed bat. draining apps that minutes even secs later just restart in b/ground. This app just shows what's doing what. Recommended. Only gripe, one widget, the battery small one seems bland and uninformative as it doesn't seem to change or is clear in what it's showing. It's not battery level. 10/10 Dev. Use with wakelock detector.
The app (if your phone is rooted) tracks some good stats but there is an USER EXPERIENCE issue. I don't know what 80% of the stats are. Either UX needs to be improved or this app is for a specific type of user, of which I am not.
You have to take the data it gives you and go to forums and work like a detective to figure which app(s) are causing problems. But it's stable and not a battery drain itself so I do recommend it highly recommend it.
Works sometimes. Many times when I start it the are no stats. It tells me that the selected reference cannot be loaded and to refresh, but that doesn't work. When it does work it's very useful though.
This app is the easiest way for me to track down what's draining my battery. I use it with root, but it's not even necessary to have root as long as you grant a permission via ADB. However, I do sometimes get "Selected from or to reference could not be loaded. Please refresh." It forces me to reset the app to get it to work again. But that's not worth a downgrade of 1 star, good job dev!
