Battery, a great free app for Windows Phone 8

With Windows Phone 8, many new features came to our favorite mobile operating system. One of them allows apps to query the current state of the phone battery. And here comes Battery, a great battery management app.

Battery is a small and useful app that gives you all the information you need about the battery of your phone. But there is more! From within the app you can quickly see the status of different battery-draining phone features, like WiFi, Bluetooth and others. One tap and you are in the settings screen where you can enable or disable the feature.

Battery also has a great notification system. It can notify you for different battery-related events: when the battery is getting low, when the battery charging has completed or if your battery is draining quicker than normal.

And, let’s not forget the live tile! As in all apps by Enless Soft, the live tile is designed with special care. It is highly customizable and really, really beautiful (middle screenshot). It can be set to either change the background color or the icon color based on the remaining battery charge. Small tiles are also supported.

While there are still some missing features, Battery is one great app. Extended battery statistics, lock screen integration and other features are coming in the next versions.

Please note, that Battery only works on Windows Phone 8 devices.
