Gathering usage data for various internal components in Android has never been easy. Sure, some information is available in performance settings on certain ROMs. But in some stock UIs, it’s either cumbersome or impossible to track your usage. Naturally, this information is quite useful when your phone suffers from unexpected battery drain thanks to high CPU respource consumption.
To make up for the lack of a built-in solution, XDA Forum Member Rolf Smit created Tinycore. This app serves as a system, CPU, and memory indicator that is displayed right in your status bar. But due to limited space of the bar itself, only one variable can be displayed at a time. The application doesn’t require root or any special privileges to run. But if you really like it, you can set Tinycore to run at every boot. You can also customize its display options to suit your needs most.
If you are interested in monitoring your RAM and CPU usage, you should give Tinycore a try. A full list of features and the download link can be fount in the application thread._________
