BattLineSvc V1 / Battery Indicator Line in Title Bar

A battery indicator line is nothing new, these have been around since before Windows Mobile 2003 SE, but most of these run as a process. Back in the days when all you got was Windows Mobile that wouldn’t have been much of a problem. But today, there’s more simultaneous processes running, using a lot of the 32 available slots for processes.

User thx1200’s BattLineSvc Battery Indicator Line runs as a service, keeping an extra slot available for an application or process to run in. Another advantage of it being a service is that it uses little to no resources.

Current features

  • Shows a nice bar along the top of your screen to indicate battery status.
  • Colour changes based on ‘warning’ and ‘critical’ battery levels (configurable).
  • Immediately correctly resizes when the screen orientation changes.
  • The battery level is updated at 20 second intervals and also when the device is awakes from sleep.
  • Can show a bar at the bottom of the battery bar (if you want it).
  • Can be offset from the left, if you have a fancy Windows Logo icon.
  • Height of the bar can be changed.
  • VERY low resources used — runs as a TRUE service and uses as close as 0% CPU as is possible by an app like this. So it’s good for even older snail devices. 馃榾
  • AppToDate support!

Continue on to the application thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts聽comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
