Get Accurate Battery Usage Statistics for your Android Device

Looking for a great app to monitor battery usage? Battery Diviner by XDA member Izkata is a great app that provides in depth analysis into your Android devices’s battery. It also monitors usage and gives you very precise usage details and uptime. Here is a quote from the main post:

The Battery Diviner learns your patterns over time to generate extremely accurate battery usage predictions. For example, little to no usage while you’re asleep, or large usage when you play games during that train ride every Friday…

  • When first installed, it’s using a “Level 0″ prediction – a simple charge-divided-by-time, so there’s something to display
  • After a day has passed, it switches to “Level 1″ prediction, only using Level 0 as a fallback if there’s missing data. Level 1 is more accurate than Level 0
  • After a week has passed, it switches to “Level 2″ prediction, which includes the day of the week in the algorithm. It is the most accurate, and Levels 1 and 0 are only used as fallbacks at this point

There are no profiles/etc to download, and it should work with any Android 1.6 or greater device. Because it examines usage patterns, it should also still work with over/underclocked phones.

The app is available both for free and paid. So, check out the discussion thread for more info on the app and to learn more about how it works.

Pinsy Brings Social Sketching To Your Watch & Phone

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
