    Hi,

    I am looking for a free application to monitor my phones cpu usage in % in the status bar and with high refresh rate.

    Is there any? :thinking: I tried all the ones I could find in the market that looked promising.

    Have you used it? How is it on battery life? Seems something that polls often enough to show real time CPU usage would be a tremendous battery hog.

    I went through the same thing. You have to click the notification option to download a theme/text app basically. Then you can go back in to the same setting and select it. Then poof! Notification MHz.

    No I have not, but I've use similar thing with Elixir (can display battery and CPU), and I was not happy with the battery usage.

    hello 3 years old thread, I wake you up from the dead because you are like the third result when searching for android cpu status bar.
    so finding nothing useful I registered just to help others: finally I discovered "os monitor" which does this job nice without battery drain. I've set it to refresh at a 5 second interval, but it can do 1-second refresh, too.
    cheers
