    Default unidentified status bar icon

    Hi all, so I have an HTC One (m7) and there is an icon that pops up randomly for just a split second in the upper left hand side of my status bar. I don't know what it is or what it means and was hoping somebody could help me figure out where it's coming from. It will sometimes show up after ending a phone call or unlocking the screen. It really only shows up for a split second then disappears.

    It kind of looks like the mac icon for activity monitor. I've attached a picture of it if that helps.unidentified status bar icon-screen-shot-2014-04-21-4.16.23-pm.png

    Thank you

    I actually do see something similar when I hang up a phone call. I always thought it sort of looked like the screenshot icon, but it goes by so fast it's hard to tell. It seems to just be an artifact of hanging up a call for me and doesn't stick around so I've never really given it much thought. It certainly doesn't cause any problems.

    I get it when I send or receive texts. I think it's just a system busy icon.

    I found out what it is. It's the usage app. Although I'm not sure exactly what it does.

    Yes its the data usage app, it pops up because the app counts messages, phone calls, and data usage.
