"System monitor widget is back"

Reviewed by / Oct 19, 2012

Elixir 2 is an enhanced version of the well-known monitoring app

If you were already using Elixir (first version) you know what we're talking about. If not, we recommend you to directly get Elixir 2 since it has been enhanced and overtakes its previous version regarding both performance and interface.

Elixir 2 is a system monitor app that contains lots of highly configurable widgets that display info about battery, cpu usage, memory usage, internal and external storage, wifi, APN, GPS, bluetooth, sync, airplane mode, sensors and many more. This way you'll have a quick access to all that Android system features that you use most.

Elixis 2 though, is way more than a simple info tracker and displayer. It claims to replace built-in Android system management features. For example, you can manage apps installed in your device, uninstall them, move them to your SD card, view logs or any system detail related to them. Likewise, you can manage status bar, sensors, running apps, widgets and many more. You can even backup/restore your device from Elixir.

Tamás Barta has focused on enhancing the app regarding feature, although also regarding scenery. Dashboard looks now pretty good and it's way more accessible. A quantum leap over its previous version.

    Try to sort things by size in files and does nothing. Really just a bunch of bells and whistles no one needs.

    Elixir is always one of my first additions to a new Android installation. Not only does it include several features that are easily available only in Elixir, its interface makes it the simplest way to use readily accessible Android features - rooted or not. Simple and ingenious. Thank you!

    Don't like being restricted from features would rather buy it outright than be persuaded to get rid of adds

    You want info on your phone? You got it! This app gives you access to sensors you didn't know you had. Really useful for diagnostic work, and can be super charged into a "tasker" beater.
