    Funny.
    I tested that so famous app for two days and I lost more than 20% charge duration in same daily use.
    Coincidence?
    Then I noticed an italian feedback in store from an angry buyer "It collects random data for actin as it is hard working; after purchase I noticed all data don't link my real usage even in real time. IMHO that's SCAM."
    Ooook... I prefer the good old icon on top screen.

    I found that most battery apps use a lot of juice which is, kind of, counter-productive, so I gave up on them.

    I use Battery WP (free version) it shows stats on lock screen and Glance like today's charge rate/ discharge rate. I think I may just pay the 99c and update
    EDIT: just purchased and well worth the extra stats

    I agree that some are very nice but all that monitoring has a cost.

    every app uses energy. i think it is not reasonable to install an extra app in order to save battery...

    If every app uses battery how does installing one save battery?

    so i don't believe there exists an app that can save more than it consume.
