    Has anyone released a more accurate Battery App? I've been using Battery Status, but I'm now bored as to how it looks. Anyone wanna recommend a good one with a nice interface?

    Also, what widgets have you guys downloaded and are using?

    What kind of battery app? I just use the one that comes with the phone. It's somewhere under settings. It's really neat shows exactly how your battery is being used.

    From my knowledge, there's no current battery app that will give you a very "accurate" reading of your battery. All the battery apps out there will tell you exactly what the phone will say under settings -> status. It only shows by the 10%s. Therefore, you won't find an app that will say you've got 73% left or whatever. This MAY change once the phone is rooted.

    I use battery status too cause I can click on the battery and it will give me a battery settings menu and quickly change things, or I can click on the % and it will display battery info plus other options. From the battery apps that I've tried, this is my favorite one. But I haven't tried every single one out there, just three of em.

    I like Battery Widget (that exact name) for a couple reasons. One, it only takes up a 1x1 space. Two, if you tap on it, it pulls up a menu to turn on/off Wifi, GPS, and button to open Display properties. Meaning I don't need widgets for those things :D

    However, it too only shows what you see in battery status (90%, 80%, etc.)
