Overview: System temperature reading in your status bar updating at your choice interval.
TempMonitor is the oldest CPU Temperature monitoring app on the android market. This app is built to do one thing: Temperature, and it does it well.
Temperature in your status bar!
** Choose from Celsius or Fahrenheit.
** Choose what temperature to display (Battery, CPU).
** Choose the update interval.
** Choose the color.
** Chose to change the color based on temperature (Ranges).
Temperature Gage Widgets.
** Hot gage widgets that actually work!
** Choose what temp to display.
** Choose from (4) styles.
** Choose the format.
** Choose the update interval.
Temperature in App Screen.
** Don't want temp in your status bar? You can always view it in real-time in the app screen. Piece of cake.
Optimized for Performance.
** Great care has been taken to make TempMonitor a powerhouse of options while not bogarting your device's CPU cycles or battery life. The current version, in fact, uses so little resources that I keep it updating at 1 second on my Galaxy Nexus at all times.
** Oh, did I mention that TempMonitor reads real CPU temperature? Unfortunately, this option is not available for all devices. Get this though: if your device can't give TempMonitor CPU readings, TempMonitor will tell you that. TempMonitor will NEVER give you a battery temp reading and call it CPU.
** Supported Devices (That I know of): Droid 1 (kernel mods), Galaxy Nexus, Droid Razr, Droid Razr Maxx, Droid 4.
** Supported but still in testing: Transformer
** If you are getting CPU temp on your device and it's not listed above, please let me know so I can update the list.
** Exclude from task killer
** Forcing sdcard install causes widgets to disassociate on reboot!
** Issues? Email or I can't help.
Frequently Asked Questions:
** I do not see CPU temp in the app?
By default, TempMonitor does not display cpu temp in the app or notification. To enable this setting, please select either App Screen CPU Temp and/or CPU Temp Notification from the preferences menu.
** Is this real cpu temp, or battery temp?
TempMonitor will never display a battery temperature and call it CPU temperature. This app is coded to read and present as much temperature data as possible from your device. CPU Temp is currently not supported on all devices. If your device does not support CPU Temperature currently, you will be alerted to that effect.
** What is update interval?
The update interval refers to how often TempMonitor checks and updates displayed temperature notifications. This option has no effect on the update interval when viewing the app screen.
** What is "Force System Data"?
This is enabled by default, what it does is force the application to read battery temperature data stored by the Android system in lieu of attaching to the battery sensor directly. Note that many devices do not allow attachment directly to the battery sensor, and that on supported devices, when attached to this sensor, battery usage is extremely heavy. This is a legacy option for those who wish to view real-time battery data for a brief time while testing or debugging battery issues. For most users, Force System Data should be checked.
