Android: Many people who buy Android phones already know all about the device they choose, but for those that don’t or who forget, Elixir can help. The app will display your Android phone’s system status, internal components, available storage and more. It will even add a widget to the home screen with more information inside.

When you open Elixir it displays current system status, including the battery level, CPU frequency, available and used memory, available and used storage, and more. Drill deeper and you can see serial and model numbers for your Android phone’s components, like the motherboard name or model and type of display.

Elixir also has a few widgets and controls that can come in handy if your phone doesn’t have them already. You can control the volume for individual alerts using the app, so if you want your alarm to ring loud but notifications to ring quietly, Elixir can modify the system settings for you from the one control screen. The app can even toggle your accelerometer on or off, and lock the screen orientation.

You can also add a widget to your home screen with those most often-used controls in it so you can toggle them without having to open the app first. Elixir is completely free, and worth a look if you like total control over your Android device.

  • You forgot to mention that widgets you can add to a home screen vary in size and you can add multiple icons. This permits you to have anything up to about 49 icons on a home screens.

    This is a MUST HAVE 5 star program.
