Usage Timelines Free

Dr. Achim Leubner
Usage Timelines is a CPU and process monitor with graphical load history. It shows you when & which app overloads your phones cpu so you can stop it.

A trial version is available at http://www.refined-apps.com/trials/UsageTimelinesPro-release.apk

For questions, remarks, suggestions or feedback mail us at support@refined-apps.com

For an add-free version see "Usage Timelines Pro" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.als.usagetimelines.pro)

---- Features ------------

✓ Extended cpu load history as notification in the notification bar (like xload/windows task manager)
✓ Process listing
✓ Cpu and memory usage of processes (similar to "top" or windows task manager)
✓ Processes can be terminated and uninstalled
✓ Works without rooting
✓ Very low power usage
✓ Supports English and German


---- Power Consumption ------------

Some remarks about power consumption and performance (percent values are for an HTC Desire).

✓ tl;dr
Set your update intervals as high as acceptable for you. Power consumption should be fine then.
Shorter update intervals lead to higher power consumption since the values are updated more often.
You may also use it just when you experience problems and turn off the notification otherwise.

✓ Usage Timelines has been highly optimized (e.g. the history notification uses 0%-1% of the cpu power with an update interval of 2 seconds if the screen is on).
✓ If everything is fine, Usage Timelines should be the app in the app list that uses most cpu since all other apps should be paused by android. That's normal and expected behavior.
✓ Displaying the process list needs some additional power, especially if you are working with the app (e.g. scrolling). Without scrolling etc. thisis about 1-2% for an 5 seconds update interval. If the process list is not shown (e.g. while you are using another app), the process list does not use any cpu power.
✓ If the screen is off, only the values for the notification history are acquired to be able to properly update the usage history as soon as the screen is switched on again. Neither the notification history nor the process list are updated if the screen is off since you could not see the update anyway, saving cpu power and lowering power consumption.
✓ The ad library uses some cpu power (1-2% for non-animated admob ads, slightly more for animated adsense ads). You can get rid of this by using the pro version.

Dr. Achim Leubner
Pitea Ultimate is a virtual church organ based on high quality samples from a real church organ (coming from http://familjenpalo.se/vpo/sf2).

While this organ can be played via the android device screen, it also contains everything needed for a midified organ console:
✓ 33 organ stops
✓ Support for 3 manuals + pedal
✓ Support for midi via USB (depending on the android device)
✓ A registration view to easily switch registers while playing on an organ console
✓ Support for low latency audio on the Galaxy Nexus; lowest possible latency on other devices.

We also offer other music apps. For details, see refined-apps.com.

-- Highlights ----------

✓ Low latency audio

Low latency audio is a weak spot of Android (see http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=3434). On the Galaxy Nexus, low latency audio is finally possible. Pitea is one of the very few apps already supporting this! On other devices, Pitea provides lowest possible latency.

✓ High quality samples for all contained stops.

✓ Support for external keyboards and expanders

On devices with Android >= 3.1 and USB host support (e.g. Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, Acer A500, Asus TF101, ...) you can connect an external keyboard or midi expander. You can play Pitea from your external keyboard, organ midi console or play an external sound generator from Pitea.

✓ Midi file player included

The included midi player works with any standard midi file stored on your android device. You can output the midi events via Midi/USB (if your device supports it; see above)
