Improve the battery life on your Apple iPhone 5 or Apple iPhone 4S with this app
Since the battery on the Apple iPhone can't be removed, keeping a freshly charged cell around is not going to be possible. There are ways to improve the battery on your Apple iPhone, including the mophie Juice Pack which is a protective case with a battery embedded inside. Not yet available for the Apple iPhone 5, the Juice Pack is a great way to protect the phone and get extended battery life at the same time. But what if you don't want to spend the money to buy the case, or if you have an Apple iPhone 5? In that case, you might want to check out an app called Battery by Lurie Lurceac.

With a really nice looking UI, Battery gives you a number of interesting stats such as how long it will take to fully charge your phone. The first screen tells you how much time you have left to run a certain task before the battery dies. If the app is telling you that you have just 10 minutes left to watch YouTube, you know which clips you can view and which ones to avoid. The app will even estimate how much talk time you have left for a conversation over 2G or 3G. Knowing this data can be important, especially if you are using your iPhone for business. You don't want to be on an important phone call with Mr. Drysdale from the bank when the battery on your Apple iPhone dies.

Besides giving you enough stats to help you make an informed decision on how best to stretch out the battery life on your iPhone, the app also will give you tips and recommendations such as reminding you to turn off Wi-Fi when you're not using it, or telling you that reducing the brightness on the screen will help enhance battery life.

The Battery app is available as a free download from iTunes and is available for the Apple iPhone 5 and Apple iPhone 4S. Make sure you have enough battery power left to downland the app on your handset.

This app is hardly useful. The iPhone already has good battery life and it's a no brainer to just turn down screen brightness and just use the phone less. But nobody needs to be subjected to having to turn off cellular connections and WiFi and GPS, etc. The latest smartphones are smart enough to not use WiFi and GPS when there isn't a connection. Plus this app doesn't really do anything.... Not to mention Android has had an app like this since 2009.

2009 you say. I guess that's the point Android has a million of these apps. Apple is just figuring out that not everyone does the little thing to save battery without these reminders

Alan... It is Mophie, not morphie. Morphing is when you change state.

You know what? When I made the same mistake last week I promised myself that I wouldn't repeat it...looks like my batteries are in need of a recharge!

Thanks!

And here I thought it was a battery optimize app... No hardcore tweaking of battery? Just useful tips... If you own a smartphone but dont already know that wifi and screen brightness kill your battery fast then this app is for you. Everybody else, continue being awesome

screen on time and cellular connection - two top reasons why the battery dies. Cut data/wifi off at night and use 2G to improve battery life.

What Alan?? This app doesn't even come close to fulfilling its job.
And LoL...its not even updated to iPhone 5, still letterboxed.

You need to remove this article, and review this app "Battery Doctorby Beijing Kingsoft Internet Security software" .This is the best app, just check this out buddy and correct me if Iam wrong for the features it provides.

P.S . I could not post the URL here because I am still under 7 day registration policy..lol!!

That's why you don't buy a phone with a non-removable battery.

There are literally dozens of apps available for the iphone and ipad that do exactly what this app does. It doesn't hurt to review the common sense ways of preserving your battery life and conditioning your battery, but I think the last thing we need is ANOTHER app that does the same thing...
