    Is there a way to get the battery percentage on the top bar so I don't have to use the HTC battery widget? Just next to the battery, or even over lapping the battery is fine.

    I am not rooted...yet.

    The ZDbox app has that feature...and several other useful features too.

    I like Battery Left Pro. Clean look, nice widget (separate download), and somewhat customizable. It calibrates to your battery too to give a more accurate reading of your battery, and it gives an estimation on the life of your battery (How much time you have left on it/what time it will die) based on the recent usage.

    I liked this app, it was clean and a lot of cool things...

    Question though. Does an app that is Ongoing (constantly in the notification tray) take more battery away? It puts the battery meter in the bar too, is there a way to get one that is on the right side of the notification screen instead of left, where email, voicemail, and text alerts go?

    Or are there any ways to get it to the top right, instead of top left?

    Anyways, thanks!

    An app this is ongoing will use some battery life, but you can look at the built in battery use analyzer and you can see that zdbox uses virtually no battery.

    As for moving the notification stuff? I think that's built in to the system so unless you root, I don't think so.
