You can have a thin status bar for ram or CPU monitoring.... You pick between two or go pro version for both.... The free part of app works good for the basics and it shows a very details list of specs on your phone like cores.. Clock speed for cores.... Ram used and many essential nerdy specs.... Good to use on older phones... No need to look up specs for performance data
Pairs nicely with OS Monitor for finding CPU-hogging apps. | Update 11-13-17: Thanks for the reply. Found "Hide with statusbar" option to hide in full screen mode. | Gladly paid $1.30 for pro, set up CPU, temperature, RAM, battery bars (yellow|red|green|blue bars, length ratio 3:1:1:1). I use it with OS Monitor; when Tinycore shows high CPU, I check details in OS Monitor. On my Galaxy S5, Tinycore's CPU gauge seems to read too high above 50%, but it's still a useful qualitative gauge. It helped me identify a CPU-hogging widget.
Just updated to OnePlus Oxygen 5.0 on the OnePlus 3T (8.0 Oreo) and the CPU monitoring is no longer doing anything, just an empty bar. Thought I'd mention it. Really like the app, hope it's sorted out soon.
free version provides useful overlay of either CPU or RAM, works for my needs... Plan to upgrade to pro soon, as the added features seem like something ill get alot of use out of!
I love this app and have done for a long time but there is a bug I have found, I've had the animation enabled and after a while the CPU monitor will be blank.. I'll have to disable and enable the service for it to work again... Xperia XA1 Ultra on Android 7.0
Please help deal with the persistent notification on android Oreo... cannot hide it
• User interface improvements
• Option to animate monitor changes
• Support for more CPU's and GPU's
• Improvements to keep Tinycore running at all times
• Many small improvements under the hood
• Quick settings tile to enable and disable Tinycore
Android 8.0 users: Due to security changes in Oreo, apps can no longer access CPU load information. However CPU frequency information is still accessible and I made it a non-pro feature Oreo devices.
