System Monitor - App Review



So, just what is going on in your iOS device?

I'm a glutton for good graphics, so this App is worth a look.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
There are a number of options on the left of the screen, the rest of the real estate being used to display information, some of it in great graphics:

Memory
A neat 'speedometer' to show the percentage of memory in use, as well as digital readings for free and used memory.

Battery
A graphic of a battery with digital reading of charge left, as well as an indication of the time needed to recharge.

Processes
Presumably, this should list the processes currently running. You'd be amazed at how many there 'normally' are (including some of the names); unfortunately, this remained resolutely blank.

Disk Info
So, how much space have you left on your iOS device to add more? This again gives you graphical and digital representations.

Device Info
Detailed information on system, display, connection support, battery, physical, hardware features.

Cost
The App costs a nominal $1; you can double that by an in-App purchase of realtime graphs.

Indispensability
More for curiosity.

Dependability
As mentioned previously, the processes tab does not seem to function. There are also times when getting detailed information overwrites other parts of the screen, which then do not refresh.

Security
No issues detected during testing.

ACIDS Test Rating:

For the curious.
