Graphic information overlay

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I was wondering if anyone else has been able to get the graphic information overlay to show on their Dev Alpha devices.  My three year old was able to get this information to be displayed, however it seems that the keypress combination or setting to get this to be display is too technicle for me to find.  The memory and cpu usage indicators are of particular interest to me.

 


 

Any assistance appreciated.

Re: Graphic information overlay

Fantastic thank you lol.  Not only is my three year old more technically proficient, but I seem to have my head in the sand.  I did not know the feature was there and I have had not seen or read about it, ah well.

 

Thank you

Note that you have to do the swipe on the home screen, not while in an app or other places.

Re: Graphic information overlay

Has this stopped working with the latest update?

Any way to activate it again?

 

I'm unable to activate it but used it in the past frequently. Was very useful. :smileysad:

Re: Graphic information overlay

This is not available in 10.0.9.2320. No word on whether we'll ever see it again, though I miss it a bit too.
