One of my biggest gripe about Android is that there never was a way (or an app) to display live network statistics on screen without obscuring your view. This is where Network Monitor Mini comes in - you can configure the app to sit at the top or bottom edges (corners) of the screen and it takes up extremely little space (since its called mini for that very reason) and it displays LIVE network statistics!
Isn't that brilliant? You can also configure the color and transparency options. The app does slow down your performance a bit but if you need live statistics - then look no further, this app is the right one for you! The app itself is completely FREE but has ads obviously, so grab it now and give it a whirl:
