---- Features ------------

✓ Extended cpu load history as notification in the notification bar (like xload/windows task manager)
✓ Process listing
✓ Cpu and memory usage of processes (similar to "top" or windows task manager)
✓ Processes can be terminated and uninstalled
✓ Works without rooting
✓ Very low power usage
✓ Supports English and German

---- Free vs. Pro Version ------------

The pro version supports all features of the free version plus
✓ a widget to quickly start/stop the cpu load history notification
✓ settings to change the notification colors
✓ no ads and thus smaller resource consumption

---- Power Consumption ------------

Some remarks about power consumption and performance

✓ tl;dr
Set your update intervals as high as acceptable for you. Power consumption should be fine then.
Shorter update intervals lead to higher power consumption since the values are updated more often.
You may also use it just when you experience problems and turn off the notification otherwise.

✓ Usage Timelines has been highly optimized
✓ If everything is fine, Usage Timelines should be the app in the app list that uses most cpu since all other apps should be paused by android. That's normal and expected behavior.
✓ Displaying the process list needs some additional power, especially if you are working with the app (e.g. scrolling). If the process list is not shown (e.g. while you are using another app), the process list does not use any cpu power.
✓ If the screen is off, only the values for the notification history are acquired to be able to properly update the usage history as soon as the screen is switched on again. Neither the notification history nor the process list are updated if the screen is off since you could not see the update anyway, saving cpu power and lowering power consumption.
✓ The ad library uses some cpu power. You can get rid of this by using the pro version.

Todd for identifying what apps eats your CPU Most excellent. Complements Micro CPU Monitor very well to notify of high usage and what causes it.

uses too much cpu 100% of the time this app uses up to 50% of the cpu and way too much memory!

Prevents lock screen from sleeping Great app...except it prevents my lock screen on my Galaxy S5 on lollipop from sleeping after I receive a notification. This only happens when the option to Show Load Time Line is set to "on". If I get a message while I'm not near my phone, the screen stays lit & it kills my battery. This alone is enough to make me look for another CPU monitoring app.... :(
