What's New in Version 3.6.12
Bug fix release.
WARNING! UPDATE RENDERS APP ALMOST WORTHLESS
I used this cool looking app all the time as it is easier to see and seems more accurate than the tiny icon that comes with the 3gs. The update disguised as a bug fix made it unuseable! After update, Nag screen to upgrade to paid version requires another click before you can see the graphic behind it. Luck was on my side however as I updated from the phone and was able to delete the app and then just resync from the copy on itunes back to the old version. My rating is only for the new version. The old version gets 4 stars. Note to Andrew Vilsak - Your dishonesty and disregard for your clients comfort has just lost you a potential customer! No matter how good your paid version might be, I will never even consider your upgrade. Suggest you learn from this and fix the update. A small banner with link at the bottom of the app would be acceptable but rendering something unusable that you already gave us is just plain nasty!
Good idea, but badly done
This app had everything it takes be great. And in fact, it was good until the last update, when it started bugging me on every startup about buying the full version. There's no way to stop it.
Oh, and the picture? Not correct. This app only tells you the battery level in 5 percent increments. I'd rate this a 4-star if not for these problems.
Was good - now just an ad
This was a good free app. It did one thing and did it fine - tell you the battery remaining as a percentage. You could quickly go into this and then into whatever app you needed. But now you must click on a pop-up add fir the "full" version just to see the number.
I am deleting this and will one of the many free alternatives that have not been crippled by an ad-only update.
