System UTIL Dashboard - App Review



Are you interested in knowing a bit more about what your iOS device is doing?

This is a neat App that does exactly that, in an easy to use and understand format.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The main screen has 6 areas which offer various items of information; just touch any one to be taken to the appropriate screen,

Battery
This shows you the current status, as well as how long it will take to fully recharge, and how long until it expires, given various types of usage.

Memory
This display shows memory allocation between wired, active, inactive, and free. There is also a reminder of how to close Apps.

CPU & Processes
This displays running applications, as well as an updating graph of running processes, and a list. This is purely for information as you cannot effect any changes directly from this screen.

Disk
This splits 'Disk Space' between used and free

Network
Apart from confirming an Internet connection (Wi-Fi or cellular), together with usage information, there is a very handy dial to quickly check your Internet speed.

General
A plethora of information awaits you here, including the device type (can get a bit confusing, especially with iPads), details of installed hardware, and detailed CPU information.

Cost
The App is a reasonable $2 but also has advertising.

Indispensability
In fairness, this is all useful information but not really indispensable. The battery monitor (and reminder) will however attempt to instil some discipline into you for maintaining battery life.

Dependability
The App is designed for the smaller iOS screen size and supports 2x mode on an iPad.

Security
There are no external connection issues with this App.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Useful information + battery saver.
