    I updated 3 apps last night...Google Goggles, Bunny Shooter Free, and Facebook and have had extreme battery drain today. By 10:00 my battery was down to less than 10% with normal use. I've been charging it all day and had the battery back up to about 40% when I took it off the charger for less than 1 hour and it was down to 1%. I'm uninstalling those three apps I updated yesterday in hopes that it was one of those updates.

    A friend at work said he also has had similar problems with his Droid today.

    Has anyone else seen any drastic battery issues today?

    I believe the culprit was Google Goggles. After uninstalling it yesterday the problem seems to have gone away.

    I have heard that Juice Diffuser is a free app that will help save your battery life. Basically, I think it turns off your 3G and 4G to help save battery life. I am not sure, as I don't even have a smartphone yet....lol
