Omnistat app widget

Omnistat is a new app available in the App Store that provides a quick glance at some basic stats of your iOS device from within the app itself, or from Notification Center via a Today tab widget. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Omnistat used to be a jailbreak tweak back in the days of iOS 5. The tweak has now matured into a legit application that is simply yet elegantly designed to show various statistics about your device such as CPU usage, running processes and more.

All stats can be accessed directly from the app itself where everything is broken down into several categories: device, Wi-Fi, cellular, storage, memory, CPU, and battery. The same scope of information can also be accessed via the widgets, which are also broken down into several categories.

Obviously, this app won’t be for everybody, but if you like to keep a close eye on the various processes running on your device, or on your CPU usage among other things, then the $1.99 price tag of this app shouldn’t turn you down.

Download Omnistat in the App Store for $1.99.

      Except it’s not free. those widgets are part of their premium pack.

      • Richard Gomez

        I still have them on my today widget though without paying the only one you really have to pay is the photo frame, currency converter, and time zones and its only a dollar to unlock all of them i have all the widgets without paying

        In the app it shows battery and few widgets to be part of premium pack but there is nothing stopping you from adding them from the edit option on Today view of NC..

    • Except it has a calculator widget which means you’ve lost your money if you purchase the IAP since it’s bound to be pulled sooner or later if Apple is being consistently stupid…

  • yzjustdatguy

    Does this app really work? Like does it really show your stats accurately? I thought apps couldn’t tap into things like this

  • Paul Edmund

    I bet Apple will pull this one too.

    • hkgsulphate

      why bascially these widgets are just displaying info, no calculations there

      • Ali Morina

        it was a sarcastic comment bro

  • AnArcticMonkey

    Quickly download it before Apple removes it. I wonder if sports widgets are going to be the next to go in Apple’s attempt to control the phone you paid for…man I cannot wait for the iOS 8 jailbreak to release for Mac, running out of reasons to stick with Apple.

    I’ve always been curious as to why people would want this information. Can someone enlighten me? Is this more of a developer tool?

      If your device is running sluggish, or crashing, it can help to debug where the problem lies. It’s more useful jailbroken. Say your CPU is running at 90%+ constantly you can run “top” in terminal and see what is causing it to run like that.

      It’s very usefull to have for android as you have full control over individual apps and there use. I have failed to see what good it will do for my iPad other then just tell me what’s going on. It is nice to have an at a glance idea of usage.
