---- 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.

Definitely worth the money I bought pro so that I could change colors. Which I did & it works. But the colors in the notification tray are more muted then in the notification bar. Of you could make the tray more vibrant like the bar would be 6 stars.

Not as good as freeware. Cannot show you whether a process is running as a service or a foreground/background app, until you expand the app dropdown. Lacks basic color coding or other visual cues. Cannot show CPU usage for each core and cannot show core speeds, like 3C Process Monitor. Cannot show the thread name for an app that has multiple processes running (i.e. FooApp, FooApp:bgdownloader). Cannot show a usage timeline inside the app itself (Not wanted in notification tray). Definitely not a "Pro" app.
