Elixir 2



    Elixir 2's review

    Published: 2012-10-19, by Manu Galvez.

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

    • Good-looking layout
    • System management features
    • Easiness
    • Backup/restore
    • Not for low-profile users

    "System monitor widget is back "

    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.
