Not bad, but mem size listed is not all inclusive I was looking to find a battery level app/widget that is smaller in size than the one I am currently using. At about 90k, this one seemed to fill the bill. So, I downloaded and installed it, and set up the widget. After checking the memory sizes, I was dismayed to find that it is much larger than what I'm using. The app/widget I'm currently using has a download size of 1.6MB. After installing, it is 2.25MB and the background service is about 3.6MB, for a total of 5.85MB. By comparison, after installing Battery Solo Widget, it is 260KB - which is very good - but when the background service starts up, it takes up a whopping 11MB to 15MB. However, over a short period of time it drops down to a more reasonable 3.9MB, for a total of 4.15MB. I seem to be experiencing a faster draining battery, but I have not yet researched whether or not it is related to this widget. So, 4 stars for now.
Good widget, no permissions This app works for my phone and has no funky permissions- why do some of the other battery widgets need access to my WiFi or pictures or location, etc? Data mining? . I guess I will live with it with the likes of Google, Amazon etc, but not from Joe-s++t-the-ragman's app shop. Thanks for a great free app.
Not accurate The home screen widget doesn't update to reflect accurate battery life. The widget said I had 59% at one point and then just minutes later my phone beeped at me that I only had 10% left. Pointless app if it isn't going to tell me how much battery life I have.
Works Great but……. I love the App. It does a great job, it's nice to be able to see Battery and Charge status with just a glance, BUT, it some times freezes up. When that happens, I REMOVE and PUT BACK the ICON (I don't uninstall and re-install the Widget) and it works again for a while. I am running Android 7 on both devices that have this behavior. That may or may not be an issue. I've not heard back from the email I sent the developer.
Didn't do the job Widget needs to be clicked before giving the correct battery level. The memory excuse won't wash. This is a brand new nexus 5. If not sorted soon, I'll find another widget.
I haven't even opened the app yet. I just downloaded it. The thing is unlike so many other apps, this one gives you clear information and help on how to use it. The developer seems very accessible and responsible and I feel like this app is going to be around for a long time because of the attention he gives it and gives to those users who love it--like me.
