Getting a system overview on Android and Chromebook can be a real head-scratcher, unless you use Cog. This open source app displays key system information and resource usage in an easy-to-grasp form. Processor architecture, CPU model and utilization, memory amount and usage, screen resolution, network interfaces -- Gog makes all these data immediately available for your viewing pleasure.

You can even watch CPU utilization in real time. This might not be a very practical functionality, but it undeniably makes the dashboard look more stylish. Cog's source code is available in the project's GitHub repository, and you can install the app from the Google Web Store (for the Chrome browser and Chrome OS) and the Google Play Store (for Android).
