Keep Track of Your App Usage with Aptrax

A few days ago, we talked about the useful application Frequency by XDA Forum Member AggieDev. Frequency’s sole purpose is to allow users to track and display which applications are used the most at any given time.

While Frequency is a fantastic option for those looking to learn more about their app usage habits, having more choices is never a bad thing. XDA Forum Member Mendrake offers his own take on the app tracking idea with Aptrax.

Like Frequency, Aptrax allows users to keep track of which applications you use most. But unlike Frequency, you can also uninstall these applications directly from within Aptrax’s nice Holo-themed interface. Aptrax also keeps track of not only total time spent in applications, but how many times each app was launched.

There is, however, one significant trade-off when using Aptrax versus Frequency. Aptrax only displays total time and application launch count since Aptrax was installed. In other words, there aren’t any available filters to display daily app usage, and so on.

Aptrax is another great option for those looking to track and manage their application usage. Make your way over to the application thread to give it a shot, and be sure to also check out the previously covered Frequency as well.

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera.

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
