Keep the internet switched on all the day, check emails frequently, and browse couple of websites, alongside making calls or texting, and the battery will be completely discharged by evening most likely. Hence it is always a good idea to keep an eye on the battery status so that you can use your phone more judiciously. Battery Indicator Pro app for Android is such an application that keeps track of the battery status alongside a whole set of other features that you’ll come to love. Battery Indicator Pro Android app costs $1.5.

Battery Indicator Pro App Features

Battery Indicator Pro app for Android always runs in the background with no noticeable effect on the battery life. Now note this part: it is not a widget; so it does not take up home screen space. You can’t find it in the apps drawer either. Instead, it shows up as an additional icon on the notification bar, next to the battery symbol. The available % is displayed on top of the battery icon. From the settings screen, you can set the thresholds to change from green – white- red as battery slowly drains. For example, if you’d set the threshold as 100-70% for green, 69-40% for white, and red for anything below, you can adjust your phone usage accordingly when the indicator changes to white/red color.
