This app runs in the background collecting you battery level, voltage, temperature and plugged state and sends this information to your Pachube account. If you don't have one, just go to https://xively.com/signup (Pachube was renamed to Cosm...and now to Xively) and create a username and a password. The app will take care of the rest.
Additional data is also collected to help you understand your battery charge cycles:
- Screen brightness
- Network status
- Phone Call state
- WiFi on/off
- Bluetooth on/off
- Data transferred
You can change the data collection interval and the send data interval (in minutes). If you don't have an active connection the moment the application tries to upload the data, it will try again later.
Afterwards, and whenever you feel like it, you can go to your Xively feed online and look at, for instance, your battery charge cycles.
You shouldn't have to worry about this app anymore.
Once you have a feed ID associated with this app, you can check out your battery information using any browser by typing the URL: https://xively.com/feeds/YourFeedID
You can now also send notifications to your Pebble Watch when running low on juice!
Note: Since the change to Xively, the web console started showing the feeds created by this app as "Legacy Feeds". Also, the web console seems much less powerful than before as now I can only check the data for the past 6 hours (while before I could look at the collected data for up to a year)
*For advanced users: If you want to use your own API Key make sure it has READ, UPDATE and CREATE permissions. If you want to use an existing feed, the application will create the necessary datastreams if they don't already exist.
*DO NOT install on sd-card or the services won't start automatically on device (re)boot
*If you have an HTC device, be aware of FAST BOOT option, as it won't start the application services automatically on REBOOT
