  • List all running apps on a device (-p ios or -p android), python appmon.py -p ios -ls 1

Things to remember

  • After starting appmon, you may need to interact/use the app on the device till you see messages on console similar to Dumping to foobar.db and until then you not may not find your app on the WebUI's app list.
  • For every unique app, appmon saves all data into a SQLite database with the same name as that of the app's name under the appmon/app_dumps directory.
  • If you want to start a fresh session, you may need delete the old db for that app, under the appmon/app_dumps directory (do not forget to backup it up shall you need it later)
