I think that this is a great idea for an app, and one that has left me geeking out in a big way while looking over all of the data analytics. It’s interesting to see exactly how much memory is being used by which operations within iOS, and quite alarming to see how many system resources are going to waste!

First off, you can view a graphical display of wired, active, inactive, and free memory, all presented in a real-time format. You can also see a cool rundown of exactly how many files are on your device, including further information such as songs and videos, and even artist and genre information.

The battery monitoring is a very useful feature for me because I find that my iPhone 4 battery drains way faster than it ought to. It’s interesting to see the estimated work times based on things like standby, audio playback, and web browser usage.

Perhaps the most interesting section to my mind is the process and CPU monitoring. I say this because I’ve noticed that my iPhone 4 has slowed down significantly over the past couple of years, regardless of how much data I attempt to free up.

It’s really quite enlightening to see all of the processes that are running and how much of the CPU is being utilized at any given moment.
