Monitor battery behaviour with Better Battery Stats
Find applications causing the phone to drain battery while it is supposed to be
asleep and measure the effect of corrective actions:

* Spot drainers based on detailed information about the root cause
* Measure the effect of actions to reduce drain
* Detect changes in the awake/sleep profile and quickly find the causes (rogue apps)

The app displays bar graphs based on reference points as explained in the
Getting Started section of the Help menu and it is good idea to read that if you
want to have any chance of interpreting the information.

Requires root: On Android 4.4 it does. Otherwise you only need root to view
Network or Alarm stats.

Google Analytics and Locale SDK integration were removed.
