---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.
Note: No personal information is collected or transmitted. We don't know what brand of toothpaste you use. Your IP address may be stored by Google Analytics, but this is never used to do nasty stuff. We promise.
--Compatibility-- This app works on both phones & tablets, and is ICS (Android 4.0) compatible.
