The reason someone would download this app is for an easy way to track their battery life, and have it in a nice widget, which was my reason for downloading but there is so much more to the application then you would think.
When you first open the application you may be overwhelmed with all these numbers on the screen but they are really very useful.
The first screen you see has a big battery bar with your percent inside it, and the name of your device under it. For example mine is at 27% and the device is the LGE LG-P999 (G2x)
Under that information is a few numbers. The numbers mean how long your battery will last while doing certain things. I could listen to music for another 2 hours and 27 minutes before my battery would die.
Some other things tracked on the first page are:
Internet Browsing (WiFi and Mobile)
Talk Time (2G and 3G)
The second page as well tracks how long your battery will last with some other things:
Playing 2D and 3D games
All these times have shown to be close not 100% accurate but it for sure gives you a good estimate of knowing when you will have to charge your batter.
Another thing listed on the first page is the time it will take to recharge your device which is also another helpful thing so you know how long to start charging before you go out.
The last page is just a few bits of information about your batter. For example you can see the battery health, what kind of battery technology you have, the temperature, and the voltage. All helpful for keeping your battery as long as possible.
There are a few settings in the app that you can play around with. One of them is the battery color.
When changing the battery color there are many colors and shades of the color so you can always find the one that you want. The color will change the battery bar color on the main screen and of the widgets. One thing I wish is you could set different colors for different battery colors such as red for below 10%, but you can only set one solid color.
Calibration is also something built into the application. This is a test you should run when using the application so you will have better results and more accurate remaining times.
There are a variety of widgets that can be selected for your home screen as well. There are three different kinds of widgets: horizontal (2×1), vertical (1×2), and compact (1×1) which has 4 different widgets built into that choice (see picture two above).
When the phone is plugged in and being charged the battery bar will get a charging icon and a cool little bubble animation that I feel is just a nice touch to the app.
With this app if you check the notifications option in the settings it will show charge level in the notification bar. This makes it easy to always know your battery life if you have a battery meter on your phone that doesn’t show the percent.
Notifications are also something you can choose to activate in this app. You can get your alerts by sound, or voice, and you can disable the alerts during the night so your sleep won’t be interrupted by alerts.
The sound option will play a little sound, but the voice will actually read your battery level and you can set these alerts for ever 5%.
Overall this is a very nice application, and useful application. The widget isn’t the prettiest and neither is the notification, but the best part is the app tells you how much time you have left on your battery. If that isn’t enough it tells you while doing specific things like gaming which is also something useful. I would not say this app is a must have but if your looking for a batter tracker this would be the one to get.
