Excellent and very flexible app Great help on the site. I would like to ask the developer to add the the following about the Process tab to online Help: 1) to switch from Advanced mode to Basic, you need to go to any other tab and back, or press Back 2) to kill a process in Advanced mode you need to press on the garbage can icon - it will turn into X icon, then select the processes by clicking on them, then press on the X icon 3) to sort the processes - switch to Advanced mode - press on the histogram icon - select the desired criterion
Great For Keeping An Eye On Your System, But Needs A Notification Icon For Network Usage OS Monitor is a must-have app for monitoring system resources to pinpoint rogue apps that eat up the battery or phone home without your knowledge. I keep the CPU usage notification icon on all the time in the status bar, and it only uses around 1% of the battery. However, what I REALLY want is the option to have the icon display the total bandwidth usage (upload + download) instead of CPU load right in the status bar, instead of the pull-down screen. Please consider adding this VITAL FEATURE!
Just listing the processes This app only shows what is running and that's it. Cannot kill processes or force them close. Native "Apps" menu does the same thing except some additional statistics. There should be a way to add this app to Device Administrator list so it should work as it is suppose to.. Sony Xperia Z c6603 5.1.1.
I install this on every phone and tablet I use. It is an absolutely essential utility to see tasks spawn, network connections, logging etc. Once in a while, when I apply an icon pack from cm themes, if the icon creator made an icon for os monitor, it causes os monitor to crash over and over again. So, I don't use that icon pack system wide, that's how much I love this software 😄 I am bummed that it won't have 7.x+ support. My status bar has a sad. Still great, but I can't find anything to replace it.
notification icon doesn't reflect the real CPU usage I run it side to side with Quick System Info Pro and Cool Tool, both show the true CPU usage, while OS Monitor always shows just a few bars at max in the notification icon. First I liked this app more, but now I'm disappointed. More refresh options are needed.
ESSENTIAL Tool - INSTALL THIS NOW AND READ ON CURRENT MALWARE Having been very heavily into modifying Android devices for about 8 years. Admittedly I became very overconfident, VERY STUPIDLY stopped following most Android threads. Considering I work in information technology I fully admit this was a CRITICAL ERROR on my part... Noob level BAD. if I had room to explain the issues I could have avoided if I had this application before a week ago even the most die-hard of Android lovers would flash stock or even perhaps go apple. I feel sick saying that...
