This app can be seen as a simplified version of Better Battery Stats' ability to collate and display full and partial wakelocks, respectively known here as screen and CPU wakelocks. For a quick, one glance overview of where your battery juice is going, this app is hard to beat. Better Battery Stats goes further than just wakelocks and alarms, but often that's more detail than one needs, so even though that app effectively provides a feature superset of Wakelock Detector, I find it useful to have both apps on my phone.
Essential for fixing wakelock issues. This app is helping me fix my phone by detecting which apps are keeping my CPU wakelocked. For those who do not know what wakelock is: Sometimes, even when the screen is off, some apps (running in the background) are still using the CPU, which consumes more battery. Most of the time that is vital for the app (like GMail that keeps checking your in-box), however, once in a while, you might find something unnecessary stealing your electrons. This app helps you detect situations like those.
Great and important app. There seem to be some issues with keeping the detected stats while browsing /using the app. While going between screens, sometimes the stats for a given app or all apps are reset for some reason, without me doing anything intended to do that or changing the reference point. Sometimes happens on re-opening the app too, I think. Pretty perfect, other than that.
Doesn't seem to work as well as previous builds Now, every time I open it, there is no info shown unless I hit the refresh button. And even then, there are a lot less things detected than there used to be. My phone hasn't changed at all, only app changed.
Не работает на андроид 5.1. Говорит нужен рут. На 4.2 работало без рута . В целом, приложение полезное. Upd: I've installed v.2.0.1 but the application still requires root after I run it. Too bad. I like this application very much. While pressing the "Install as a system app" Thanks for trying to make it work in Android 5.1 though
Thanks for making this free. It is a user-friendly app with lots of sophisticated wakelock info. This is what I need. I am considered as lucky because I am still using Android 4.3 which doesn't require me to have root access for this WLD to work. Keep it up!
- Material design improvement
- Added option to revoke Installed System app
- Added WIFI state permission to support Marshmallow
- Support for Marshmallow (both native api and dump sys)
- Bug fix
Note: if you have a ROOT, you can use WLD with or without installing it as a system app.
