    I've seen a few screenshots of peoples homescreens which show a battery percent in the task bar.

    Does anyone know what app this is?

    I've come across ones that sit in the top left notification area but I'm after one that replaces the battery icon in the top right, with a percentage.

    Any pointers appreciated :)

    Just installed this app. I like It.

    Question. Once installed, how do I get back to the settings where I can choose to have the percentage or not at the top of the screen and to change the theme colour? The settings menu only enables you to choose which phone you have.

    Yeah as mentioned, I saw an app or two that added the percent in the top left.

    But I'm after the one that replaces the default icon in the top right...

    Thanks for confirming,

    The screenshots I saw must have been of a rooted device then.

    ok, so i'm rooted...

    what are my options for a taskbar battery icon?

    i've seen a lot of the ones w/ a circle and a %-age number in the middle.

    thanks for any help... :)

    Usually you have to install a specific custom ROM which Either has them as standard or downloadable ad ons.

    It may be worth asking this question in the all things root sub forum.
