As a BlackBerry power user, I rely on my device lasting throughout the day. Whether it's answering personal or work related emails, chatting with friends on BBM or a third party messaging app, or checking my social networks, the battery takes a beating every day.
There are a plethora of battery applications to choose from in BlackBerry World. The latest to hit the storefront is BatteryAlerts, a native and headless app by HugSoft. With BatteryAlerts you can view important information concerning your battery, as well as, setting alerts which will appear in your Hub during a specific event (i.e. battery charged, unplugged, etc.).
BatteryAlert is an easy to use app for tracking your battery and creating notifications to keep you apprised of its strength and health. When you launch the app you are brought to the notification screen. You can toggle between this and battery info by tapping on the corresponding icon at the bottom. From this screen you can set alerts, to be received in the Hub, for such events as when your battery condition changes, charger level, changes in battery temperature, charged to full capacity, and more. If you go into the Battery Info screen you can view the health of your battery, temperature, cycle count, time to empty, etc.
In addition to the tracking features, BatteryAlerts also comes with a theme setting. By swiping down and going into settings you can swap between the dark and bright theme or choose to enable the Adaptive Theme. This setting automatically sets the theme based on the brightness and light sensor.
