    Hello Everyone,
    I want to share the windows phone 8 app I am working on. There are a few Battery apps on the marketplace, but I bet this will be something very different. I am still on new features.

    Battery.Net | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Current Features:
    - Three types of tiles with useful information
    - Current Charge and Discharge rates
    - Today's average Charge and Discharge rates
    - Overall average Charge and Discharge rates
    - Graphs for observing battery charge trend over time.
    - Access Wifi, Cellular Data and Location Service settings directly from app
    - Many more features to come...

    Please feel free to critic my work. I would try to accommodate your feedback wherever possible. An app review would be great. I wish to work on supporting many languages for this app.



    few screenshots

    Yeah, thats ugly I know, but the AdMob and Microsoft's ad controls need it. Sorry about that.

    The question is, why do the ad-mongers require access to your photos and phone dialer? Not functions I'm prepared to hand over without good reason, and 'because advertising require it' is not a convincing case for hitting the 'Accept' button for me. Way too fishy. Before we know it, instead of cold calling you the ad-mongers will be getting your phone to cold call them! After all, you ticked the box that said it was ok for them to do that. Not me.

    I totally get your point. Here are some links I scooped from google, may be they will help.

    This one is from the Developer's Book

    Windows Phone 8 Development Internals - Andrew Whitechapel, Sean McKenna - Google Books

    Just want to mention one more thing here, all these are Capabilities of the app not permissions.

    I get your point, if you are uncomfortable clicking on the Allow button, developers should give you a paid version of app with capabilities you are comfortable with.

    Hey Thanks,

    Microsoft is giving me hard time with my developer account. I can't accept any payments until its resolved. I would have to create a new app with option to remove ads.
    There will be at least couple or more updates for a new feature, I am working on. I am hoping by that time the issue with Microsoft would be resolved.

    Cheers

    Hey guys,
    Just updated the app with a new feature to compare battery performance by days. All you have to do is to select the days you want to compare, the app will show a graph with Green Charge rate and Blue Discharge rate. Comes in handy to compare performance before and after
    • Firmware Upgrade
    • OS Upgrade
    • or any App you installed


    Check it out !
    Download the app using this QR Code :

    Hello Guys,
    Because of issues with Microsoft, I had to un-publish the app and republish it under a new developer account. In the process I have lost my download counts, reviews and also the spot Battery.Net had in the app store.
    Well, Battery.Net application has been added back to the market and this new version is going to be updated in future. We are working on very interesting new features. Please download the app from the app store again. Your ratings and reviews will greatly help us recuperate from the loss we incurred because of having to change developer account.
    There are no updates from the previous version, it is the same application, just that we are going to upgrade this version going forward.

    Please get Battery.Net at Battery.Net | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    OR use this QR code to directly go to the app from your phone.

    Hey,
    I have added a version for people who feel uncomfortable with extra phone capabilities which are needed for the Ad controls.

    Check it out.

    If you don't mind ads then try this

    Hey Guys,
    a lot of people have concerns with giving away permissions to the app so there is a new version of battery.net which just needs phone identity, owner identity --> to anonymously identify users and data services, push notification service --> to enable notifications. that's it.

    Please check out Battery.Net lite | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
