Daily Android App: Elixir v2.0


One of the applications I always install on any of my Android phones right after a firmware update, is Elixir, because I find it very useful.

Elixir is a system information application with highly configurable widgets, which helps me to quickly display any information about my device from battery stats, to cpu frequency, missed calls, unread text messages, internal-external storage space left and a lot more.

Tamas Barta  developer of this application brings an updated version of Elixir, the 2.0 with a totally new GUI interface and a new icon pack.
