Battery Widget is not an app; it’s a simple desktop tool for monitoring you battery-life
As easy as it sounds, this is not an app but a 1x1 widget to put on your screen and see at a glance how much juice your battery has left. What's more- and this is really interesting- if you tap on the widget, it will show a battery with 5 buttons:
"Battery" Button : This opens the Battery Monitor screen where you can see how much battery each Android system feature drains (screen, wifi, apps, etc.)
"Display" Button : This opens the Display settings where you can set the font style, brightness, saturation, etc.
"GPS" Button : This opens the Location and Security settings
"Wi-Fi" Button : This enables/disables Wi-Fi.
"BTButton ": This opens Wireless and Network settings
These extra features allow us to carry out a comprehensive control of our battery life, by configuring the main processes that make the battery run out fastest.
Battery Widget has been developed by Gekyouup (mippin.com), an app developer focused on widget performance. They've launched lots of similar apps for a wide variety of issues.
Battery Widget is a truly recommendable way to monitor your battery life, not just to see how much is left. Thanks to the shortcuts to the main settings options, we can increase battery life in just a few taps of the screen.
The latest update fixes the notification tray issues, adds “Quick Toggles,” adds a cleaner/sharper UI skin, and adds community battery reports, allowing you to see how certain apps drain battery among users worldwide.
Note: This doesn't open; it is a Widget not an app. Add on home screen with Menu -> Add -> Widgets -> Battery Widget or Apps -> Widgets -> Battery Widget
The permissions are required for the “Quick Toggles,” which allow you to easily control your device settings and optimize your battery directly from within the widget.

Then it updated and added a bunch more crap. New icon is terrible. Does a battery widget really need quick toggles? No... Also, it's consuming about 10 percent of my battery now. Before update it wouldn't consume enough to be registered. At least bring back the original widget Dev!
New update has toasted this program for me. Using a Samsung precedent on 2.2.2 Froyo rooted. Nothing fixes crashing. Cause don't get me wrong I love the idea of the new UI. It just crashes 10 seconds after opening, when installed first time and subsequent installs.
Revert back or make this an option with a setup app. Or at least add the homepage display option back in. That was my main reason for using this widget
I actually like the blue, but more options for different colors would be nice to help it stick out against certain backgrounds
I liked the control of showing the desktop, when I wanted, very quickly from the widget. I use daydream for something else.
What I liked most about the app b4 the update is the option to see view your live wallpaper or background image without any apps or widgets in the say. yes it's a small thing that was taken away, with the latest update, but that was one of the major plusses that I likes most. I would like to hope it comes back later on but I don't know if you would implement it back into the app. Because of that I
I have seen the many complaints about the change from green to blue, and saw the kind response from the developer promising a choice of colors in an upcoming release. To be fair I will wait up to a week then uninstall this app and go look for another one. I must say that none of us can complain. This is a free and ad-free app.
