Elixir 2

Elixir is a system utility for Android that displays information about your device. You can use it to view battery and storage info, view a list of installed apps, move apps to an SD card, see which processes are using your system resources, and do much, much more. Elixir also offers a number of configurable home screen widgets for launching apps or accessing system settings.

The developer just launched Elixir 2, a major update which has a new user interface, more Help icons to help you navigate all of the app’s features, and more options in most screens. You can also apply labels to apps so that you can sort installed applications by label, text filter, system or user-installed applications, or apps that are on your SD card or apps that can be moved to an SD card.

Elixir 2 is also separated into a primary app and an Elixir Widget app. This lets you move Elixir to your SD card to save space while still using widgets. Generally apps that offer home screen widgets don’t perform well when moved to an SD card.

You can find a complete list of new features at the developer’s website. Elixir 2 is available as a free download from the Android Market.
