Is there an app for this??
« on: December 13, 2012, 08:26:30 PM »
I find it really odd that with all the talk of hours of use per battery charge, I can't for the life of me find an app that measures actual screen time.  I know there is a timer that displays time since last charge...but what good is that?  Other than keeping a stopwatch with me to start each time I power on, and stop every time I power off, how do I measure actual time of use?  Would appreciate any help!  Otherwise, love my N7!!

I would argue 'what good is screen time?' Bluetooth time consumes more battery power than screen time does.

That's why I rely on a battery widget's % remaining display to judge my remaining battery time.

I'm not the lowest of the low, but I am the slowest of the slow (49.6 mpg over 38k miles in  Scion xB)

Actual time of use is all relative to what you are using the device for.. Video, email, music..etc. I use a battery app that gives you a breakdown of time. Its called Battery+
