- The usage data can be exported in the form of csv file, which could be sent through mail.

Nice, but suddenly stops tracking I feel this app is a must-have. Sadly I recently discovered that it hasn't been tracking the apps the last two weeks. I started it again and it continued tracking, but next day it stopped again. FYI: Phone have not been restarted (I have an app that keeps track of this).

Lovely app, shows lots of interesting stats. Sould be the first app you download on your phone. It doesn't track my netflix usage right tough. Would it be possible to see how much battery it drains, cause I've used it since I got the phone and suspect that it uses a lot of it. (Show percentages in the battery settings)

Just a memory eater app. I specially like as I turn on the phone, use any app and it tells me that it is the most used app of the day...
