Good app, poor support. While the app is good for what it is, I found support from the author to be lacking. I've sent three emails trying to get help with a minor but recurring problem and not once did I get a response.Otherwise a five star program.
Greedy? Good app for people that don't care about money. Only feature I wanted enabled was to make it thicker. Go figure it would cost me 4 bucks to do it. Don't think so... its just a monitor? Greedy devs get no stars.
Too high CPU to run all the time Eventually realized that the battery usage to benefit ratio was too high. Going to rely on Battery Monitor Widget Pro's notification icons to detect problems, then Settings>Battery or OS Monitor to let me know what those problems are. Get this if you often want to eyeball a feel for how much CPU a game or some other foreground app is using in real-time.
High battery usage My only complaint is it is the highest battery hog out of all my apps. Please make it use less battery for a better rating.
Does what it says Shows you your CPU usage and even the free version has enough customisation options for a basic user. Its tiny and uses negligible resources. Only issue is when set to be above status bar, I can only see 3 cores information, setting it to show without cores hides it off the top of the screen.
Works but often gets killed by Android Badly needs a mechanism which will prevent the app from being killed when memory gets low. Had to use Memory Locker on 4.3 to keep MCM loaded, but ML doesn't function properly on KitKat, so now this app gets killed too frequently to be useful.
