[prMac.com] Dayton, Ohio - Have you ever pulled your phone out of your pocket, only to find that you barely have any battery power left? Or even worse, your battery had died and you didn't notice, leaving phone calls and messages unanswered. To bring you peace of mind, Verietas Software announced today the release of Battery Alert!, an expansion to the innovative and entertaining app Death Cough, to maintain awareness of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch battery life. Never get caught with a dead battery again!
Battery Alert! is a simple-to-use app specifically designed to ensure you always know when your battery needs a little extra juice. When its "warn" threshold is met, it will play your chosen alert sound and present an alert window, even if your device is doing something else or locked and in your pocket. When the "alert" threshold is met, the app will play the configured alert notice, alerting you to recharge your device or it will shortly power off.
"When we developed Death Cough, we created the world's first real-time iOS battery monitor. But we did it in a sort of tongue-in-cheek way that some users didn't take to," said Joshua Pressnell, Founder of Verietas Software, "We felt Battery Alert! would provide the more practical user base a useful and needed capability without the sometimes-annoying death sounds."
Battery Alert! is the second app in the Verietas Software portfolio to provide real-time iOS battery monitoring while not operating actively in the foreground. Users start the app once when they turn on their phone, and then leave the app running in the background, free to do other things. When the appropriate battery levels are reached, the app plays a sound and presents an alert notice.
