About

PowerTracker Mobile is a very simple Battery Tracker for your iOS Device, it is not designed to provide you as much info as possible about your Device like Charging Cycles, remaining Usage time etc, instead it is designed to give you Information about the current and all the other iOS Devices using this App, so e.g. you own an iPhone, an iPad and an iPod, so instead of verifying each Device from time to time, PowerTracker Mobile does this for you, you simply install the App on each Device and launch it once, thats all, once done PowerTracker Mobile will attempt to grab your Battery Infos and collect them in one place so you can verify this values from each Device for all Devices.
 
It lists all the Device as they come in providing a visual indicator for capacity, along with Device Name you configured in iTunes and the Percentage. The Date and Time at the bottom of each entry indicates you from when the data is, if it is too old, you probably should relaunch the App on a desired device to force iOS to check again frequently ..
 
The only optional setting you basically have is to turn off the Clock from the Widget, for details read the Widget Section.

Behaviour

PowerTracker Mobile runs simply in background and tracks your Battery Level, it doesn't do this in live mode, so it doesn't respect any change, instead it relies on iOS to perform this check from time to time in background, once it notices a change, it posts you a Notification and stores this new value in iCloud, this on the other hand makes all your other Devices including your Mac to get notified and post another Message on all the Devices again, and update the Widget in the Notifications Center on iOS.
 
Your Devices do not need to be on the same Network, its enough to be connected to the Internet to be able to be notified.
 
This may break from time to time while iOS will terminate PowerTracker Mobile to free up some Memory, thsi requires you to relaunch the App from time to time.
 
PowerTracker Mobile also detects if charging or not, so whenever the Row in the main UI is coloured yellow, this means the Device is charging.
 
The Level Indicator changes its colors on the following levels:
 
70 - 100 5 will be green
70 - 20% will be yellow
lower than 20% will be red

 
It also may happen that PowerTracker gets confused which Item it is so it stores another Entry which may be duplicated Device, in this case you can simply swipe an entry to the left and hit delete.

Widget

The Widgets itself mirrors the content of the main App including if you want to , it displays a large clock. The Widget itself does not do anything, but it will update the current Device whenever you make it appear, so every time you go to your Widgts Section on iOS and make PowerTracker Mobile Widget appear, it will update its status to iCloud if changed since last visit.
