if you want to use an alternative to Betterbattery stats ...???
that does work on Kitkat ( with a small adb hack , very easy to do ,
no root required ) ,if you do not understand how to install ask and i will try and help ? )
.....Wakelock Detector .I am using it on v 4.4.2 with the hack and working 100%
For those who is interested link......
post # 338 see ( developer ) ..akhitmat post .
He sets out in post what to do !
It is better than having nothing to check apps hogging , battery /wakelocks etc
Also on kitkat ( if you don't know , apps like Quickpic cannot access and copy /transfer to sd card
also es file explorer also cannot)
i have found using Samsungs onboard Kitkat "My files " explorer you can access Sd card and complete these functions quickpic and es file explorer, can't do !
