I would like to present to you my latest app, it allows you to monitor miners using API (so far only at Bitcoin.cz and PolMine.pl but BtcGuild will be in next update (in few days):
Google Play - Downloadhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tajchert.polminewatcher
It allows to:
  • See current balance, speed of all and each miner.
  • Notify if speed drops below some threshold (custom interval of checking in background).
  • Present data in form of nice charts.

Screenshots:

TODO:
  • Adding custom sorting (now it is by speed).
  • Better graphic design (maybe tabs).
  • Average speed of last 24h.

If you appreciate my work and time (I would be more than happy):

or please rate app in google play.

If you have any comments, see any errors, or even have any good word for me Wink don't hesitate.

Why do I need it again?  Any smartphone can open pool's API page to check the miners.

I didn't posted it here before.

And, yes, for sure you can open API by yourself but each time do you write it down to keep some record of your miners? Does it notify you when speed drop? No.

Plus: If you are checking your miners in the morning if they are working what guarantee do you have that whole night everything was alright?

I use akbash to automate miner monitoring and restart.  I don't have to check anything manually.  All monitoring of miner and OS is done automatically.  If I want I check miner status I go to akbash status page or go to the pool status page.

Pools provide email notifications when miners go down.  So does akbash.

This app does not offer anything new.  Why would someone want to install a questionable app on their cell phones to check miner status or hash rate?
Use pool API page, and setup pool email notifications.

Good Luck with your app.

I can't disagree with you but... the same is for example with Facebook, for sure you can get email notification about new post/comment but it is inconvenient in most cases, that's why users install app in their phones.
Also for example at PolMine.pl there is email notification but it doesn't work, I don't why, it just doesn't.

And there is a question of manner using particular technologies, I prefer to get notifications as notifications not as email which - when I receive I expect to have some content to read (message).

And last one... just a question, how akbash notify user if Internet is lost at computer at which it is running, or at whole network? For me it look as a quite big problem as in most cases a monitoring computer (or one of miners) is in same network as monitored miners ( and if it is not we have to set port forwarding for each miner - which in some cases isn't possible). So in my opinion it doesn't look more simple or better.

Are you a smart Alec?  If connection is lost and OS cannot recover, akbash will attempt to reboot.  If connection is still not there, it cannot send anything.

Same as your app when you don't have a signal on your phone or your battery is dead.
