Announcement from Rolf Smit: Tinycore - The tiny system monitor that fits your status-bar!
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
Tinycore

Tinycore is a tiny and highly customizable cpu and memory monitor gadget that will fit your status-bar or any other place on your screen perfectly. With this app you will always know how much Ram your device is using how much load your CPU has or even on what frequencies your CPU is running.

Tinycore is in fact a small overlay window, the overlay is so small that most people wont even notice it's there. No matter what you do on your device Tinycore is always there to tell you the whats going one inside without distracting you or using lots of your valuable screen space.



In action
This is an example of how Tinycore could look when placed on top of the status-bar! Of course many more styles can be created! (See attached images for full app screenshots)

Before Tinycore


Tinycore enabled




Goal
Tinycore is designed to be lightweight, fashionable and to be highly customizable! The 'impact' on system resources like Ram and CPU aren't noticeable at all, which is great because no one wants a resource eating monitor. The application tries to follow official android developer guidelines as much as possible and comes with the simplicity and beauty of the famous Holo theme.

Although Tinycore has some pro features the basic version of the app is fully usable! For the full customization experience some pro features can be unlocked inside the app using Google In-app-billing.

Download
Currently the app is only available trough Google Play

Feedback
The main reason I created this topic was because I would really like to get some feedback. I did not have the chance to fully test this app on devices with 8 or more cores, if you have a problem or got some great ideas! Let me know!
