Smartphones are complex devices with different software and hardware aspects to explore. There is so much that we do not know about the Android device that we use.
If you wish to probe and know more about your device, Elixir is the perfect information app for you.
There is always a lot to know about your device such as the hardware, the CPU, internal and external memory, network, camera and other components as well as the sensors in your device and the running processes and services. Elixir gives you all the information in an elegant style.
About Elixir App For Android :
Elixir is like a single source of all the information about your device.
The app list down a number of system components and functions and you can view details about them. The below image shows few of the system components and the details that you can view on selecting battery.
You can view such details for the internal and external memory, CPU, RAM, network and many more system features.
The second tab lists down the sensors present in your device. If any sensor is not a part of your device, it is displayed as not available. Selecting a sensor displays the details and specifications of that sensor.
You can toggle the sensors on/off as required.
The third tab lists the running processes and services of your system. You can get more information about any of the process or service.
This information is not something that you can frequently use but can be quite handy for those who like to know the intricate details of their system.
The Elixir Widgets:
Elixir comes with highly configurable widgets. These widgets can be set up as you like and can contain switches to toggle various functions.
While configuring a widget, you can select the function for each slot, name the widget, set its fresh rate, modify widget style, icons and label settings.
Multiple widgets can be configured or imported/exported. The above image shows three widgets arranged on the home screen.
Elixir has detailed settings options. There is option to have status bar icons for battery and CPU. The application settings provide extra customization options and you can change how the application behaves on a regular click and a long click.
Elixir also allows us to change the action that happens on selecting any of the widget icons. For example, I set up the ‘Mobile Traffic’ icon to launch the 3G Watchdog app instead of the default Wireless Settings.
Elixir can be a bit difficult to setup at first. The app has a handy Tips & Tricks section to help you in such a case.
