About this app

feel free to contact me for reporting bugs and fixing problems.

This app has been discontinued. Since Android 8.0, Google approach to overlay is limiting apps such as this making it impossible to overlay over system ui!
please checkout ChargeTone that takes the audible features of Battery Overlay Percent to the next level.

Battery Overlay Percent is the first truly customizable solution to keep your battery percentage showing without cluttering your notifications.

It'll show percentage over your battery icon or anywhere you want over your status bar.
(up to Android 7.x)

Unlike other Battery Percent solutions this app is using overlay instead of Android's notification method. this makes nicer streamlined appearance most of the time while not wasting your notifications space.

Battery Overlay Percent is great solution for showing percentage in the most elegant way.

- Customizable size, positions and colors.
- Sound notification once charging/discharging! (optional)
- No ROOT required!
- Show percentage even on stock ROMs!
- Battery efficient (won't eat up your battery just to show you percentage...)
- Trying to use minimal permissions required.
- FREE and commercial free!
Still as many developers, If you find it valuable - there's a key for additional extra features.

- Custom Colors for different battery states.
- Custom Font Styles
- Custom Charging Blink Interval
- Custom Sounds for Charging Notifications
- Single Digit Numeric
- Overlay Rotation

Known issues:
- Unsupported on Android 8.0 and above. Google has disabled overlay on System UI.
(They however add percentage on the side of the battery which might be an alternative for your usage).
- Aggressive service killing (eg Huawei) might get the app to stop.
Sometimes, whitelisting would work.
- Limited Samsung Device Support (DUE TO SAMSUNG'S FAULT!)
* Status bar changes alignment and cause overlay to look in wrong position.
* AccessibilityService makes TTS work. Disable any TTS as a workaround.
(Samsung is very aware of this bug posted by many developers).
