App allows you to track the battery life of a friend or family member's iPhone or iPad
Battery Share is the name of an app in the App Store that allows you to monitor the battery life on an iPhone or iPad belonging to a friend or family member. The app will also send out a notification to any of the iDevices that you are tracking, reminding the user that his or her battery is running low. You'll even know if someone on your list has toggled on the Low Power Mode. Every iOS user whose battery you track has to agree to share the information with you, so this won't be considered intrusive by those whose battery life you are watching.

The app isn't free, however, and requires that you part with 99 cents. And guess what! If family and friends agree to follow your iPhone or iPad, the app also will alert them about your current battery level. This way, your friends will know if you're being a total ass by not responding to them, or if it is merely a case of a dead battery. Plenty of misunderstandings on both sides can be avoided by buying Battery Share.

And yes, there is more. The app also allows you to make VoIP calls to the iPhones (sorry Phil) you are tracking. One thing to keep in mind. Battery Share requires that the user is rocking iOS 9.1 or later. If you've fallen behind and haven't updated your iOS device in some time, better do so now if you plan on purchasing Battery Share. After all, the battery life you save might be your own.

Stop using android or iOS or Windows if you think "USA people" are stupid. Don't use Internet, don't watch American media, don't drink coke and don't drink Pepsi products. They're all made by stupid USA people.

apple users so stupid, what is the point of tracking someones battery status???

Wow, you serious? I track my daughters iPad to insure she's where she should be, and if her battery seems low I FaceTime her and tell her to make sure it's charged so it doesn't die so I can locate her at any time Im worried. I also have my old iPhones as remote cameras at projects that im remodeling that are vacant, sometimes i have to turn off power for a duration - tracking the battery lets you know when you gotta be more conservative about checking too often. If you loose your phone - you can check how much battery left to insure you can track it before it dies. Like I said - I've been doing this with find my phone. It's a peace of mind knowing how much juice is left on your remote devices. Those are just my uses. There are hundreds of millions of iOS users and billions of all mobile device users put together - im sure there are quite a few people that need to track their devices battery remotely for one reason or another. But yes, you're probably 12 and have no responsibilities or worries. This stuff gets really useful when you run a business or have a family. I don't call people names out of the blue, but because you didn't even consider any uses, just went straight for blind bashing you deserve to be called "stupid".

So when a developer comes out with an app that he/she feels may be necessary for someone, all Apple users are stupid? Boy, it's one thing to be a fanboy but it's another thing to be downright stupid, which you seem to be.

Dude don't mind him. He is just a brainless ape who got abused by Apple in his childhood and can't think clearly anymore.

A bigger battery would have solved a lot of issues including this.. Wouldn't need to really worry about battery at all with a decent capacity battery.

Bigger battery may change user's habit of charging often which may put them at the same situation again.

Agreed. I charge my phone once a day even thought it will last well into the next day. This is a waste of time. Get a better phone.

Cerberus and various other apps do this for free on Android. I'm not particularly interested in other people's battery life though.
