    Are there any apps that show what other apps are using the most battery? I find my "usage" time to be much much higher than actual usage. I've used my iPad maybe 15 minutes today and it is showing 2 hours 20 minutes usage and 2 hours and 48 minutes standby.

    Not in stock iOS. There might be a JB way but don't quote me.

    Keep in mind background task count toward usage though. Notifications, email fetch, music playing, airplay, etc.

    That does seen excessive I've you weren't using the tablet though.

    I'd check your background task in settings, remove things you don't find useful (Facebook, etc). Then reboot the tablet (power button + home button until you see an Apple logo).

    I recall there being one that sort of did that, I believe it's called Carat at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/carat/id504771500.

    Beyond that there are apps that can help you monitor general processor, memory, disk, and data usage which can perhaps help diagnose an app that might be stuck in some way or running too much or using too much data or something like that.

    ok thanks! I will check this out. I think this is something they should add to iOS.

    A lot of the reviewers say that this app is dead and they are no longer getting the reports :( I guess I will keep searching. If anyone else has any recommendations that would be awesome. Thanks!
