  • 'Live Battery Indicator' Offers a New Style for Your Battery Level Indicator


    iOS comes with a function to show you the battery percentage as either a battery icon with a juice level indicator, or a battery icon with a juice level indicator and a battery percentage. If you like having both the battery icon with a juice level indicator and the battery percentage showing at the same time for the maximum amount of information, but hate the clutter, then try this.

    Live Battery Indicator is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer pw5a29 that combines the idea of a battery icon with a juice level indicator and the battery percentage together into one icon. By combining the two, less space in the Status Bar is taken up by such a simple indicator.

    The icon basically shows the battery percentage in the center, without the percent sign. Surrounding the number is a circle that slowly opens up in a clockwise movement as the battery drains. It has a nice compact design and it gets the job done without cluttering up your Status Bar.

    Live Battery Indicator doesn’t come with any options to configure and you will find it for free in Cydia’s ModMyi repository if you'd like to give it a shot.

      Awesome tweak! I wish it worked w/ Bolt, then it'd be perfect!!!

      BTW, I think the creator of this is from MMI. I remember replying to a thread where someone was wanting to make this tweak. I can't find that thread, though

      + it needs to stick to the right when you listen to music and have an alarm set. I've contacted the developer, he's aware.

      iPhone 5 6.1. Worked fine for me.
      I like this app. It would be cool if the color changed when charging. Maybe a slightly glowing green or blue.

      You know what would be cool to show if it was charging????
      >Have the circle around the percentage start to spin.

      Like this but make it spinning. I made this quickly on PS but if i took the time i could make it spin with a gif. But I hope the dev gets the idea:

      I don't like it. I don't know why someone can't make one with a tiny number inside of the standard battery icon. What is that moon next to your time?

      The moon shows that the phone is on Do Not Disturb mode.

      Why don't you make that! It's just a little Photoshopping. Then you can theme this tweak however you'd like! Bedides, others might want the exact same thing you're talking about!

      this might be slightly off topic but does anyone know of a tweak in ios 6 that makes a sound when the battery has reached 100%, while charging?
      there was one in ios 5 called 'SpringClean' but it isnt compatible with ios 6 anymore.
      neither Live Battery Indicator nor Bolt has this feature.
      to finish it off, it cud have custom low battery notifications like at 5% or 2%
