What is it about tracking data that is so much fun? It doesn’t sound like much fun, of course. Find data, plot data, make graph, find trend. Yet there’s something particularly enthralling about it. If you’re a data nut, then you’ll absolutely love one of the new apps in the BBGeeks Store. It’s called DeviceInfoTracker, and it lets you really see all aspects of your device in any easy-to-track format. There is just so much information, and so many graphing options, that you might end up having too much fun with it. When you first open DeviceInfoTracker, you’ll notice plenty of vitals about your device: name, type, OS, PIN, IMEI, ESN, signal and range, battery charge, temperature, and so much more. It gives you a memory breakdown, SMS figures, data usage, and basically anything you want to know about your device. It might look a bit blank at first, but that’s when things get really fun. DeviceInfoTracker captures snapshots of your device every few hours, so you’re constantly creating new data points. That becomes interesting and even fun when you open up the menu and see all the graphing options you have. You can really graph any aspect of your device, from your phone usage to your free memory. It even logs every time you restart your device. One feature I found particularly interesting was the ability to summarize your email usage. The app scans your inboxes and generates a report telling you how many messages you have in each account, and how much memory it’s using on the device. For instance, one of my accounts is using about 18MB of space for email. If I need to clear some internal space, I can figure out if deleting emails will make a significant dent. It might further prompt me to change the length of time my device stores emails. I haven’t even had this app for long, and I’m already hooked. If you want to have quick access to all information contained within your device, you can get DeviceInfoTracker for just $2.99. I guarantee it will provide more than that in entertainment value alone, never mind the actually useful information you’ll glean from it.
