  • '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 doesnt come with any options to configure and you will find it for free in Cydias ModMyi repository if you'd like to give it a shot.

    Name: Live Battery Indicator

      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%
      Well really I don't know of any tweaks like that, but I am sure that if you look into the root of the phone and find out where it is set for the iPhone to make a noise when you plug it in, you can take a snipit of that code and add it somewhere else when the battery is very low. If I make myself clear. This is how I would change the vibrations before iOS got the upgrade to be able to create your own custom one.

      Free tweak on cydia called batterydoctorpro. Hit the search button on cydia and it'll come up. It doesn't show while you type.

      Yeah word. I really like this tweak and it fits perfect with my Minimalistic theme but needs a charging icon too.

      I downloaded and did respring but
      then found more than half of my apps
      were missing. I removed the new battery
      app and did a complete shutdown and
      restart to recover all that was removed or
      hidden. I suggest extreme caution when
      considering installing this new app as I am
      Jailbroken iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.2.
      This is a bug. Not a killer, just a pain.

      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 came here to say exactly this

      This would be cool if the half circle theme had the red effect as well when your battery dies. But seriously this needs a charging icon.
