    On my Eris I used battery time lite but when I installed it on my DX and realized it didn't update. It said I was at 30% but my low battery message came up. I've tried other apps similar but they only go by ten percent increments. Anyone know how to fix battery time or know a good free similar app that shows status in the notification bar?

    Try Battery Left and calibrate it, it seems to be fairly close and might be what you are looking for.

    I actually just downloaded it. Does it go by less than ten percent increments?

    Yes, but it's based on an estimate, so it isn't perfect.

    Untrue.

    There are two % measurements you can select.

    One is the system battery % which matches all other battery percentages I've used. Then they have an estimate based on *your* usage pattern. That one is the estimate.

    You can show one or both % on your widget and/or in your notification bar.
