What's New in Version 2.3
Localization: Simplified Chinese
I want to like it...
So in Today menu, it works great, no issue whatso ever, I can adjust it to my liking to show the details I want, and I do not need to have the app open in my Dock. Looks amazing.
On the menu bar, it forces me to keep the app open in my Dock, which is something I really would not like to have. I wanted to remove the OS X battery button from the bar and replace it with this apps, but that is not an option unless I keep the app open in my Dock (unless I completely missed it and it is really hidden)
Now the major glitch: So since I cant use the apps menu bar button because, as mentioned above, I do not want to keep the app open in my Dock, I went back to the OS X built in one… However, ever since I have downloaded this app it has been very bizarre. It seems to lock in place unless I hit “Show Percentage” to turn in on in off. If I am charging my laptop and remove it from the plug, it shows as if it is still charging and that the battery life is still 100% (even though it has actually gone down) and if I put it back to charge afterwards, it will continue to show as if it isnt charging and lock the percentage in place.
Unfortunately I removed this app, and cant really recommend it until this glitch is handled, and until they update the menu bar feature.
Customizable Low Battery Alert Times
I like this app very much. The recent update brought another useful feature; low battery alerts. It would be nice if I could customize when it will alert me for low battery. Say when it reaches 20% or something. Because the default warning seems worrisome to my battery life, which was near 5%.
I like the design and functionality of this little app. And, of course, it is not the developer’s fault that some ignorant users don’t know how to remove the app’s icon from the dock, while keeping it visible on the menu bar. RTFM or look at the settings to customize the app’s appearance. And the app supports my favorite Dark mode.
