    Looking for an app which records system events / where I can view events (similar to Microsoft's Windows Event Viewer)

    Ideally you should be able to filter/search so you can find the event you're looking for.

    At this stage the only events I really care about is the timestamp of when the phone locks and/or idle use (my definition of idle being no user interaction - no presses on button or screen etc.).

    So I'd like to know what time the screen locked (e.g. 10h00) and unlocked (e.g. 10h30) -I can then calculate the idle time (30 minutes).

    Any ideas please? Does such an app already exist? Even if it just logs the timestamp of pressing the power button (either to switch the screen on or off) that would be very helpful.

    But I'm sure I'd like to view other system events in the future (of which there must a LOT of - e.g. Wi-Fi off, Wi-Fi on, took photo, started to record video, encrypted file system etc. etc. similar to (similar to Microsoft's Windows Event Viewer)

    I'm still running 5.1.1. I haven't rooted yet but probably will when I make time... so rooted apps could also work for me

    Thanks very much.

    Is GSAM an app in the playstore? https://play.google.com/store/search?q=GSAM

    If possible please could you include the URL etc. as there seems to be more than one app called GSAM and they seem to be battery apps

    I think I misunderstood you in what you were wanting in an app. My apologies. That is the one I was referring to though. (That's what I get for trying to stay up 15 extra minutes to get a few more posts in...lol)

    Sorry for the duplicate posts. Think it was an error on the forum.

    Anyone else have any ideas please?

    Please anyone else? Android Event Viewer...?

    Thanks again
