Battery Performance goes free for the day with myAppFree

Battery Performance

The battery is probably the most talked about component of any smartphone, and the reading displayed on-screen is checked frequently just to analyse how much juice remains. Luckily, Windows Phone has pretty good battery management with Battery Saver Mode present just in case you need to squeeze that extra hour or so worth of use out of the device.

To help you out with monitoring your battery drain, there are a variety of apps available on the Windows Phone Store. This collection includes the gorgeous Battery Performance, which is currently available for free with myAppFree.

Partnering with myAppFree, the developer of Battery Performance is offering his solution at no cost to the consumer for 24 hours. As well as being absolutely stunning to look at, Battery Performance boasts the following features:

  • Estimated Talk time
  • Estimated Web surfing time
  • Consumption rate (per hour)
  • Live tile (including double wide)
  • Lockscreen: Detailed status or Quick status
  • Graphs
  • Notifications (battery low, battery charged)
  • Scores from users around the world for comparison

If you find yourself frequently checking the battery status icon, we urge you to try out this sweet app for free and see how you go. You can download Battery Performance from the Windows Phone Store for free (usually $1.99).

Already have it. Great battery app!

pookiewood says:

Definitely one of my all time favorite apps.

DieNadel says:

Nice. Happy Valentines Day!!!

Xaphoon148 says:

Can't wait to battery sense appears in WP8.1
All those battery apps are great, but without knowing WHAT uses battery, not really so useful...

NightWatch71 says:

Maybe 8.1 will let battery apps to see what's really going on. Developers can't actually give anything relevant because of restrictions.

DreadVenom says:

Me too, that app looks amazing. I hope there are some more "sense" apps hidden like a memory app to see what app is using the most RAM.

rzkwp8 says:

Data Sense. Battery Sense. What comes next?

killerb255 says:

Of course AT&T kills all things Sense..

Jack Larson1 says:

It just makes no sense.

Xaphoon148 says:

Common sense...? :P

Localhorst86 says:

I wish I could hug you for this comment.

rzkwp8 says:

Yay, Wi-Fi Sense. ;D

bitz0071 says:

Insider is the best shows all info about phone.

DreadVenom says:

Insider is amazing too but unfortunately i came across after purchasing Battery Performance.

alv3st3r says:

Yep. Insider is one hell of an app.

mccasive says:

Insider is definitely the best all round utility app in the store. I don't know why it still not that popular in the community.

saispag says:

Doesn't you reporting on these app sales make MyAppFree pretty redundant? You don't have to go through the app to get the sale it is just highlighted there, by you advertising this fact many (all) people will go straight to the store to download and circumvent the myAppFree app - not sure that's what the developers would have wanted...?

Hi saispag, I'm Massimo from myAppFree.
Wpcentral reports our deals to spread the word and notify Windows Phone users so they doesn't miss nice deals. That's a good thing for us and we are not arguing about if the users download the app from myAppFree or from direct link.
Our mission is just to provide free apps everyday.

Diho King says:

Thanks Massimo 

SnatchedIT says:

Or People might notice the reference to myappfree and get curios. Eventually they'll download it.

WPCentral reports only few myAppFree deals. If you would like to get push notifications and live tile about daily deals of course you have to download the app on your phone : )

db4williams says:

Downloading your app now! I didn't know it was out there until this article.

You are welcome ;)

spyridon says:

Mr Massimo may i take this opportunity and ask you why your app needs some many requirements like owner identity, media libraries etc?

Hi spyridon,

I can't answer to your question in an exaustive way. Please if you are interested contact our support (you can find the email inside the app) and the dev department will help you.

Take care

Great app, horrible icon. Perhaps hold a design contest with the prize being an app store gift certificate or something?

do apps like this consume more power when tracking battery consumption compared to when no battery apps installed on your phone?

920Walker says:

^This is why I have none installed. If its running, its using juice.

ThePumisher says:

This one here is the first battery app i've installed. Battery was 32% before/while installing, after an hour of not using the phone (Lumia 1020) battery is at 25%. Mate of me installed it on his Lumia 920 and this app here eats 4% in 30min. I think i uninstall it.

Jack Larson1 says:

A different app did the same to me, although it was pre-amber

poddie says:

If the app works properly, the usage would be so minimal that it is immeasurable. It literally polls a battery reading once every half hour. The idea that these apps use a lot of battery is a myth... WP will only give them control every half hour, and even then for a very limited amount of processing time. I use "Battery" by Arthur Semenov. No problems!

"Battery" by Arthur Semenov is better, imo. There you can actually analyse your way to which app drains battery, through the great graph.

sfberlingeri says:

It hangs on my L925. No way to make it work

ebin5 says:

Same on my never opens.

DenisSuncity says:

Try to open it few times. Had same issue with 925 and opened from 4th attempt. And it's fine now.

sfberlingeri says:

It now works...after reinstalling for third time

sholokov says:

Which is better, this app or Insider? I personally find Insider better.

vikrant6 says:

I use Insider regularly. Now downloading Battery Performance.. 

SaberDahmen says:

thank you very much !! 
Happy Valentine's Day !! i love you 

Idzad Idzmir says:

i prefer insider.

morpheus1982 says:

Doesn't work...hmmm

rzkwp8 says:

There is another amazing Battery app on the Store by Enless Soft. Works well, but I believe WP8.1 will eliminate the need for any Battery apps.

rzkwp8 says:

There is another battery app by Enless Soft. It has an amazing live tile, and can even give you toast notifications when your battery is discharging too quickly.

jlzimmerman says:

Yep, I was all over it when myappfree notified me. MyAppFree has saved me about $12 now, and is a must-have app for WP users.

wtma says:

Does anybody know if the live tile color changes according to battery level?

wtma says:

Nope...found it myself. Guess I'll just stick to Insider Pro.

Doesn't work on Samsung Ativ S :(

KotsarikosG says:

For me The Best Battery application in the market is..."Insider PRO"!!!

1MiNo2 says:

wpcentral is the best of the bests

ThePumisher says:

God damn, this app eats battery like nothing. 7% in one hour without doing anything on the phone. This app goes to the recycle bin very quickly. L1020

kittananj says:

Uninstall Battery Status. I love this app.

Micropel says:

This app is superb!! I have owned it and used it for the last 2 and a half sooooo worth it

garyjk says:

i have no idea why a battery app needs access to my location. i don't install apps that request location data when it has nothing to do with the app. what are they using the data for?

PO Jansson says:

The problem is not to get a New app that displays the bad performance. My 1020 has 16 hours standby without usling it. Create an app that can optimice the battery performance.

Remove or stop background of messaging apps Viber, Skype, FB, WhatsApp, turn off location and WiFi and you might get it to 3 days

Localhorst86 says:

Nice App, but I think i'll stick with "Battery" by Arthur Semenov. That app does the same thing, values my phone theme setting and additionally allows you to pin shortcut tiles to wifi, bluetooth airplane mode etc., making it a replacement for a shortcut app as well.

what i'd really like is an app that tells me the current batter percentage including estimated runtime in the detailed information section of the lockscreen so I can free up one of the notification icons on the bottom (currently it's email, messages, whatsapp, phone and battery, so I cant put facebook there :( )

I like "Battery" app better

Kashyapjani says:

It even displays the battery percentage on glance screen. Me likey.

ryaoni says:

I have tried several of these apps and they take my battery for a ride. Any of these battery apps that doesn't drain your battery?

The small tile cuts off the percentage number smh sticking with battery level app..

herbertsnow says:

Battery apps only drains your battery faster. Why don't people get that? It's the snake oil of mobile apps.

It updates 2-3 times in an hour, I can live with that.

Localhorst86 says:

Its not snake oil since the apps font even claim to save power. The just check the current battery level. They will do so every 30 minutes and their agents run for only a few seconds. The impact they have on battery runtime is minimal to nonexistent.

caladero says:

It drains drastically my battery!!!!!!

FaCu B says:

I don't have WP8 up to the coming month! :( who want to download this app from my account and then returns it? :/

Brswan says:

Great app. Can't beat free!
