Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q. I’ve got a quad core device. Why don’t I see all four cores being used?

A. Android tries to optimise the CPU usage, by shutting down cores when they’re not needed. Your phone will rarely use all 4 cores. Try downloading a CPU Stress Test app, and you’ll see the four cores then 🙂

SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW – Required to create a system-wide overlay for the monitor on edge of screen
RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED – Required for the auto-start feature
INTERNET & ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE – Used for error reporting, and anonymous usage reporting using Google Analytics.

Micro CPU Monitor user reviews :

Great simple app!! Hard to justify $2+ on pro version for only 2 additional options that are really not that justified. Nonetheless, a sweet and recommended app for people who love little gadgets on their home screen! Bring the price down and this is a 5 star app all day long.

Does what it says Shows you your CPU usage and even the free version has enough customisation options for a basic user. Its tiny and uses negligible resources. Only issue is when set to be above status bar, I can only see 3 cores information, setting it to show without cores hides it off the top of the screen.
