This nifty little app makes it easy for users to keep track of iOS devices that need to be plugged in immediately.
Do you ever find yourself so engrossed in work that you forget plugging in your iPhone and iPad, but then when its time to head out you pick it up only to find its battery on the verge of running out? iBetterCharge is the answer to your problems.
iOS devices notify the users by default when the battery is down to 20 percent. Users are notified once again when it reaches ten percent and its followed up by another notification at five percent. So there’s a system in place already to ensure that users are kept abreast of diminishing battery life, but what if they’re not paying attention or the device is simply in another room? Some would like to work without these devices present so as to minimize distraction, but then they wouldn’t know that when its time to plug them in.
iBetterCharge sits right up in the menu bar on Mac. Its a lightweight utility that brings those low battery notifications displayed on the iOS device to the Mac. Its capable of handling multiple devices and users can set granular preferences for notifications when the battery goes under 50 percent, 20 percent, 10 or 5 percent charge. Other options include ability to animate menu bar icon and play sounds for alerts. The utility also notifies users when connected devices are fully charged. There’s an ignore list as well which can be used to mute notifications from certain devices.
Users must have Wi-Fi Sync enabled on their iOS devices for iBetterCharge to work. Its capable of automatically finding devices over the Wi-Fi network it’s connected to. The best part is, its free.
