Free Community-Powered Android Battery Widget Tackles & Solves Most Common Android Battery Drainage Issues
Offering the latest solution to common problems faced by Android users, app developer M2Catalyst today introduces Battery Widget Pro, an aptly-named community-powered free Android battery widget now available on Google Play that protects consumers from rapid,
frustrating and frequently avoidable smart phone battery degradation.
Through the global M2 Community, Battery Widget Pro seeks to unite the Android industry to improve battery life, together. By joining the M2 Community, users will receive actionable community-powered battery performance insights when they anonymously share battery usage data. This shared battery performance data will help app developers, carriers, and device manufacturers improve their products and help other M2 Community members improve their battery life.
An offshoot of M2Catalyst’s internationally popular M2AppMonitor, the free Battery Widget Pro was designed specifically to address the troubling reality that with some 12,000 different Android devices and multiple
Android OS versions currently in use, it’s grown impossible for app developers to optimize their app’s performance for every single device. As a result, the same app may achieve peak performance on one smart device while consuming excessive battery resources on another.
Moreover, many apps are poorly designed and thus gobble up alarming amounts of Android battery power (often when not even in use, but running in the background), while still others use battery-draining GPS technology to track Android us
ers in order to deliver location-based ads.
Offering the most advanced solutions to Android battery concerns on the market today, Battery Widget Pro provides onscreen widget alerts informing users about the percentage of battery left on their device. Unlike comparable apps within the industry, M2 Battery Saver changes the color of the main battery monitor (please see red circle upper far right) to alert the user precisely when (and why) the device’s battery is draining too quickly. Leveraging shared battery performance data from the M2 Community, users can see how their Android battery’s health compares to other users with the same device type or carrier network.
Another crucial advantage to the new Battery Widget Pro is that users can easily flip through a list on the homescreen of apps that are commanding the bulk of the device’s Android battery power – even those not presently in use. And there’s more: by providing crowdsourced Android battery comparisons, users can readily compare their Android battery life time to the battery life time of users with the same device and carrier network.
A comprehensive App Battery Report can also be accessed listing all installed apps along with their respective battery drainage impact. Such reports can be current or cumulative over the past day, week, month or entire life of the device in question.
Battery Widget Pro is the latest in a series of sophisticated app evaluation tools from M2Catalyst, following the introduction late last year of M2AppMonitor. Selected for the prestigious 2013 CTIA Innovation Showcase from among
hundreds of mobile industry contenders, the crowdsource-powered M2AppMonitor was created for consumers, developers and other industry decision-makers to address the damaging impact different apps have on today’s wide variety of phone models and Android operating systems.
“M2Catalyst is dedicated to continuously expanding our family of app monitoring and performance enhancement resources, and we’re very pleased with the uniformly enthusiastic reaction the new Battery Widget Pro is already generating throughout the Android community,” says Michael Brough, c
o-founder and CEO of M2Catalyst, which offers a wide variety of mobile applications designed to improve the mobile experience. “With this new technology, we can not only assess the performance analytics of the world’s most popular – and sometimes, most battery-draining, apps, but can make well-reasoned, community-driven recommendations to consumers on how they can keep their smart devices healthy without compromising their own app usage experience.”
