The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

Keep Tabs on All Aspects of Your Smartphone or Tablet with Device Monitor & Inspector
The XDA-Developers community is made up of people from all walks of life. We have users living all across the globe, and rocking countless numbers of different devices. But regardless of our choice of device and OS, one thing holds us all together: We are all power users. And as power users, we like being able to keep track of what’s happening on our mobile devices at all times.
Luckily, there are quite a few options available for system monitoring and information on practically every platform. And being built upon Linux, Android is certainly no exception. However, it’s not uncommon to have to dig through several different applications to get the level of monitoring that you need. Luckily, XDA Forum Member zikkapp created an application that sets forth to take care of all of your monitoring needs from one handy application.
The aptly titled Device Monitor & Inspector is a system monitor app for Android that gives you detailed information about your OS, CPU utilization, running processes, storage, RAM, battery stats, installed apps, connected networks, firmware, sensors, and more. Basically, almost everything you want to keep track of is housed within the app. In order to keep things tidy, the application divides up all of the information into eight pages: system, storage/memory, battery, apps, network, telephony, device, and software/firmware.
If you’ve ever wanted a tool that can keep track of practically anything on your Android device, Device Monitor & Inspector may well fit the bill. Head over to the application thread to get started.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
