    So, the last couple of days my iPhone 4 battery has become very bad, and when i left my house this morning my phone had about 98% of battery left. Now, after about1 hr of usage, my battery has drained down to 53%. This is not cool. Is there any way to find out which app that is draining my battery so badly?
    Thanks!

    How about screen print all your screens and remove all the apps. Add back at will. Don't think Apple has battery apps like Android.

    No a clean way to pin-point what is draining your battery, you can list all you had installed and we can take a guess of what is the issue, or you can start uninstalling apps one by one until you find the culprit.

    Check the location settings and see which apps are using location. GPS can be a big battery hog. Any app that doesn't need location turn it off.

    Personally I have location turned off for weather, time zone, iAds, and diagnostics.

    Good luck with that, no really surprise your battery is the way it is, you are not only running everything under the sun, but some app that who know what they are doing for what i can tell, they must be constantly streaming your personal data to some server in russia. :D

    Absolutely...the stolen app..well there is no way to tell what they are doing..but also the other apps..it is not really that surprising, is as simple as the most stuff you run, the more power you'll need. so your battery will die.

    Illegal download site for cracked apps, same as. Installious

    ----------

    So in other words:
    Restore device --> Jailbreak --> Only install the most necessary tweaks? (+ no cracked apps?)

    Just wanted to point out this blatant lie. Trying to look like an ignorant, innocent bystander by asking what that is when to find out, all it would take is a google search.

    The ignorant one here is you by assuming that I'm a "blatant liar." First, I know of Installous but was not aware of Apptrackr.

    And if you're such a regular, you'd know that I don't support app piracy.

    So, heyyitzmelissa, not sure why you decided to be a major jerk but hopefully next time, you do your research and think before responding.

    Have a nice one.

    P.S.- Btw, I did do a Google search before posting and it took me to their website. I only glanced at the website and left without any knowledge of what it was or what they do. It's the only reason why I posted asking what Apptrackr was.

    I've seen several instances of when people act like they're against piracy then they post their Cydia packages and forget to take out piracy dependencies like AppSync and Repo Icons (from xSellize).

    To end this now, Installous is the program used to install illegally-obtained, cracked apps. It directs you to a mobile version of the AppTrackr site, which hosts links to the cracked apps. It is very similar to the way install0us and Appulo.us worked back in the day.

    Short summary of what I've done:
    Removed all cracked apps
    Removed AppSync 5.0
    Removed Spire (Still got a blank slot in Location Services were Siri used to be, but oh well?)
    Tured off the following in Location Services --> System Services:
    Diagnostics, iAds and Time Zone
    Ive also disabled the weather apps ability to set my location.

    It's over.

    But for the future, you shouldn't attack someone over assumptions; get your facts straight. ;)
