SystemPanel 1.1.0

SystemPanel 1.1 is now available. This release makes some significant changes to the way processes are presented. There are now four categories of applications: Active, Service-Only, Inactive (Cached), and System. Applications that have no running user-interface, i.e., "GUI" components are now place in the "Inactive" stack. Applications in the "Service-Only" are actively operating, but only as background services. This makes it much easier to distinguish between applications which are really operating and those which are simply cached in memory or operating very occasionally in the background.

The new version also adds the ability to directly open Android's own "Process Control Panel" for any application on phones/devices running Android 2.1 or later. This can be quite useful if you need to "Force Stop" misbehaving applications which are running services in the background, which cannot be terminated by the typical "End Task" method.

State of Development

This weekend we saw the Android market officially recognize the free version of SystemPanel as having reached the 250,000 download mark! Much thanks to everyone who has reported issues and suggested features!

We have a new major Android product currently in development which will be available this year, with beta versions likely available within a month. I do not want to say much about this app at the present time other than it is a fairly "fundamental" app. More information will be released soon.

During the course of development of this future product, much time has been dedicated to general user interface improvements including look-and-feel updates. These improvements will be making their way into future releases of SystemPanel and WebSharing in the not-too-distant future.

Froyo / Android 2.2 Compatiblity

Both SystemPanel and WebSharing have been designed to be fully compatible with Android 2.2 (Froyo). Both apps have been tested against Froyo ever since the initial released build for the Nexus One back in May. All products are continually tested on new phones/software updates.
