Suitable for:

Developers
This tool is perfect for developers debugging apps. See your system CPU usage at a glance, without an annoying popup or overlay interfering with your app usage. Grab the PRO version to set the update interval as small as 100ms!

Gamers
Micro CPU Monitor is ideal for use while playing games – the 1 pixel screen footprint means you won’t miss any of the action!

Battery Saving Gurus
This CPU monitor is a great way to keep an eye on your battery drain. No matter what app you’re using, the Micro CPU Monitor can tell you at a glance which applications are chewing up your CPU cycles.

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 :)

Permissions
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 :

It works GREAT on my Samsung Galaxy tablet, extremely happy with it! Very reliable, too. However, on my new LG Rebel 4 LTE phone there is no bar with CPU activity, only the empty black line 1 pixel high. Can you help?

Used this app for years with no problem but recently I updated my phone to Oreo (Android 8.1, using a Moto G5 Plus) and it stopped working. Now looking for a replacement

I’ve been using this app for at least 6 years but unfortunately it stopped working on Oreo

One consequence of upgrading to a device with 4x the resolution of an older one is that useful little apps like Micro CPU Monitor nearly disappear on it. Single-pixel height is unfortunately too small to see on my LG G3. But this is an excellent app nonetheless, and I highly recommend it.

Lot of reviews here from 2013 stating high battery use is/was an issue. Pretty sure this is resolved or the reviews were bogus. After collecting stats using CPU Monitor Advanced for months – this app hovers between 0-1% (nothing) despite having the fastest update frequency. A++

Good, but there is still a bug. As long as your CPu Govenor ist not set to performance the maximum MHz will fluctuate. The result of this is, the width of the red bars are not accurate. When my CPU needs only 10%, it will go down to 20% of it’s Performance, thus this app shows a CPU usage of 50%. This app needs to detect the real maximum Hz and respect the decreased Hz before calculating the current CPU usage.

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.

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.
