Worked great before I installed 5.1.1 I just installed 5.1.1 on my phone and now System Panel only shows itself running. I can't look at how any other apps or system software is using my phone's resources. Of course, I can look at battery, network, CPU and storage info, but nothing else. Is that all this app can offer now? Sent developer e-mail and received no response.
Perfect - Used it since beginning I've used this app since my nexus one and it's the one and only app that shows my usage and each app CPU usage, including system CPU usage. I take note specifically of idle periods and usually my CPU hovers below 0.5% total. Marshmallow seems to no longer show the cached apps in the main view, hope that comes back or gets added soon (hope its not an OS limitation with 6.0). This app is near perfect.
*LOOKS LIKE ABANDONED DEVELOPMENT* This was the go-to app for system resource management, but I guess the developers are out to lunch. No updates in over a year, no replies to Google Play reviews/ratings. Makes me wish I didn't pay for it if they have no intention on keeping up with the evolution of Android. Doesn't work well with android 5.1.1 and higher.
02/18/2016 - Excellent app which has withstood the test of time. I've been using it for many years now. I have not seen the "missing apps" issue that others have spoken of. However, I have noticed that on my Nexus 6P (Marshmallow), the icon doesn't appear in the notification bar like it does on my other devices (Sensation, Note2, Note4, Note10.14, etc.) Suspect this is a Marshmallow thing.
No longer works Used to be great. Even if it did work now, I'm not sure it would provide anything that Android didn't provide natively these days. I'm guessing newer security settings in Android mean that this app can no longer see what's going on... Or it simply hasn't been updated to work with new versions. In any case, it's broken now. If there's a way to flag abandoned/broken apps, this one should get it.
No longer works on my Nvidia Shield Tablet running 5.1.1. Still working on my Moto X 2013, but I've got a System Update waiting to be installed & doubt it will work after I install that. Was good while it lasted. My previous review was using an HTC Evo (the original with WiMax on Sprint o_O).
This release restores the major functionality of SystemPanel for 5.1.1/6.0 devices. It works around undocumented design changes in Android 5.1.1 and Android 6.0 which deliberately removed the ability to query information about running applications on a device.
