Battery Widget

Battery Widget


Battery Widget is an elegant 1x1 widget which shows you the battery level on your home screen, with some nice animation when charging. Tapping on it will show more battery information with a shortcut to view battery use. Now Battery Widget can help you save battery by letting you control device settings such as WiFi, screen brightness, GPS, and more.

In case you don't have enough space in your home screen, a clear battery level indicator is available on status bar so that you can see it even when you are browsing the web or sending text messages. It can be configured to show in 3 different colors to reflect high/medium/low battery levels. You can also define your own alerts, so that Battery Widget will automatically notify you about battery status changes.

Available in multiple languages: English, Chinese (Traditional), Chinese (Simplified), Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Russian, Greek, Italian, Hungarian, Estonian, Turkish, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Catalan, Dutch, Ukrainian and Romanian.

This is the best I've used by far. Gives you options like to alert you if your battery is finished charging or to alert you if its low.

exactly what I need, just a small battery icon in top info bar w/ a number. Doesn't drain the battery life at all either! def recommend to everyone.

No updates! So months later, the battery still shows as a white blob on the tool bar and not a word from the app manufacturer as to how, when, or if they will fix it to work with Android devices running Kit Kat or later. I give up and am uninstalling this app.

Breaks Nexus 5 Icon in info bar just white, can't see numbers in icon now. Updated this morning, 2/10, and text still white. On 5.0 this still does not work. I've used this app for years and have liked it but if they can't fix a simple font issue, have to wonder about the developers.

Useless Now The last update screwed up the status bar icon which was my favorite part of the widget. The icon is now white no matter what the battery level is. They keep saying they will fix it next week, but they obviously can't fix it. Its useless to me now.

Notification bar Battery level indicator in notification bar is solid white after update. Doesn't say how much battery is left now. I uninstalled then reinstalled and that didn't fix it.
