    Which apps do you guys like best to view which apps are draining the battery.
    I want to get an app but there are so many to choose from, which do you like?

    I think we all help one another, cant really go rong with batt apps they all do almost the same thing, I might be a noob here but ive been with apple for the last 5 years. Its all opinions on the matter, you wont know until you try.

    Battery monitoring is one thing.

    Getting a personalized audible and visiual warning when my battery hit 20%, 10% and 3% was a real challenge.

    A combination of the tweaks poweralerter (which does work on ios 5, regardless of what it says), Lowpowerbanner and then altering the sound files located at system/library/audio/uisounds.

    I happen to like Majel Barrett's computer voice over's from Star Trek, so I downloaded some wav files, changed the extension to .caf from .wav and inserted them. Sounds complicated, but it is really pretty simple.

    As far as battery life, I found a tweak in cydia under ihacks repo called battery fix for ios 5.0.1, check it out, it helped me!! Long life.

    That tweak was proven more than once to not have any affect on the battery because it simply tweaked a value that did nothing to affect or change performance. It simply changed a number..

    I'm NOT looking to improve my battery time, I'm looking to see which programs are running, and how much batt each app is consuming.

    I will often have Tomtom on while streaming pandora and checking the local radar.

    When I click the sleep button, are these programs still running, consuming battery, (I never see a button to turn tomtom off).

    So again, I'm looking to see which programs are running, and how much batt each app is consuming and any additional help is appreciated :)

    Like I told you before if your jailbroken get battery detective. If not just hit the home button twice and close all apps and settings turn off GPS location ;)

    What do you mean, turn on the phone, and open the app, then plug in?

    Battery logger shows all battery use in a graph and battle detective shows individual app usage both are good but the graph for the win
