Battery Go (Battery Life Tool)

COST: Free
DESCRIPTION: Native, Utilities
..RELEASED: 7/5/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3 Stars..

If you are lucky enough to have a Mophie Air Pack, Kensington or other battery back-up pack, perhaps the short life of your phone's battery does not distress you too much. However, for other people like myself that constantly use the phone as a mini-laptop, battery usage is of prime importance. With Battery Go, you get a simple and easy-to-use app which gives you a display of what really counts. This would be icons designating the functions of the Web, Phone, Music and Video. The numbers displaying hours and minutes are beneath each function, and there is a slider bar on top of all these icons displaying the percentage of what is left in overall battery time. This app is simple enough to use and read, and functions pretty accurately. Keep it handy so you don't get caught with your battery on "red".

"Say you're sitting at your sister's high-school graduation, but you'd rather be watching your favorite movie, and want to know if you'll have enough battery life to last through the whole ceremony. Maybe you're on a plane wanting to listen to your favorite tunes, but you're not sure if you'll have enough juice to call your mom once you land. Just launch Battery Go and see the percentage and how much time you have remaining to use all the features of your phone."

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: Use the slider to calculate various hypothetical scenarios.
--Languages: English
