Diagnosis App Shows You System Info At All Times
Recognized developer Dark3n has developed a new application called Diagnosis which can show you system information like CPU usage, free RAM, battery and data usage.

When Diagnosis is turned on, a small customizeable text is shown on screen giving you information of your choice.
Sounds interesting? Keep in mind it’s still in beta before visiting the forum thread.
