An­a­lyse your iOS de­vice

Mac Format - - RATED - De­vel­oper Mathieu Bo­lard, math­ieubo­ iPhone, iPod touch, iPad

We’re used to delv­ing into Set­tings to find out sys­tem info for our iPhones and iPads, but iOS has al­ways lacked a Ma­clike Ac­tiv­ity Mon­i­tor app.

Om­ni­Stat ad­dresses this by re­veal­ing the go­ings on at the heart of your de­vice, such as cur­rent CPU us­age, RAM sta­tus and cur­rently run­ning pro­cesses, so you can self­di­ag­nose prob­lems.

Though the app in­ter­face of­fers all the info you need, it comes into its own with the No­ti­fi­ca­tion Cen­tre ex­ten­sion. Here, you don’t even need to launch the app; the real time at-a-glance pre­sen­ta­tion is per­fect for telling you what you need to know, such as how long your bat­tery will last for brows­ing, talk time, mu­sic or standby mode, and was gen­er­ally ac­cu­rate.

Back in the app it­self, the pre­sen­ta­tion is good, but some data isn’t given a proper ex­pla­na­tion. Christian Hall

Not an app for every­day use, but it could be just the thing to un­cover a po­ten­tial iOS prob­lem.
