We focused on making GPUWatch more user-friendly in 2.0. We improved in 3 aspects.
Now you can use a more useful GPUWatch at any Galaxy device with Androidl R OS.
Appearance of overlay widgets is more readable through thick graph line and text, noticeable legend area. Of course, you can manipulate these details of widgets. Also, metrics on different categories are able to be combined into one widget as Custom Widget, so that you can get hints of relation between two metrics. GPUWatch v2.0 measures for the context of application on the top automatically. you don't need to choose a specific application to measure or rendering API for it anymore. GPUWatch v2.0 makes manipulation easier through supplying a shortcut on the Notification panel.
※ Only devices launched in Europe and Korea
You can easily turn on the GPUWatch overlay for profiling your application:
You can change the common settings of GPUWatch with the General Settings menu.
For quick user interaction with GPUWatch and for additional configuration of widgets, GPUWatch offers several buttons in the Notification Panel.
Widgets are the key component of GPUWatch. GPUWatch shows measured values through widgets. When you add preset widgets that have metrics you want to measure, GPUWatch starts to measure the metrics for an application at the top. Also you can add/move/delete widgets freely where you want. You can also use a special type widget : ‘Custom Widget’. It’s a combination of preset widget items. With this, you can have insight of relation between several metrics.
GPUWatch has categorized preset widgets. Each category is shown in a maximum 2 types of widget: Graph, Text. But some categories such as ContextInfo are shown only 1 type of widget.
When you add widgets, measure starts. you can add widgets from presets or mix preset items to one widget using CustomWidget.
By unlocking widgets using the Notification Panel button, you can move widgets around the screen and finally set the best possible position. When you move widgets, GPUWatch lets you know whether widgets can be set on the position. The red area means the space where moving widget is impossible. Green area is where possible. After positioning all widgets to desired, you have to lock widgets not to disturb game play.
You can change configuration for each widget including size, color, values to observe and others. There are 2 ways to access this settings menu.
After setting all the parameters and configuring the necessary widgets, just launch an application to measure.GPUWatch will start working automatically.
