Do any of you guys run a Battery App on you iPhones?
Nope, I don't see the need.
Yes, BatteryLife from Cydia
How can you check the battery cycles and health?
No battery apps
I don't have battery percentage turned on either
I just use my iPhone
I've never felt the need to check
I use the app called 'Battery Doctor' because someone said that it can clear cache effectively and free up tons of space, particularly for apps like FB that can get really bloated. I had noticed my FB app had gotten to be about 2gb. I didn't think something like this would be needed with Apple, though. But sure enough after running it a couple of times it got my FB app back down to around 200mb (when I had been unable to do that before by using the iPhone's general settings), and I went from only about 1.6gb free to close to 5. I don't know exactly how it works, and some say it's not supposed to work, but it does. Hoping it's not getting rid of anything that I really need. But no issues yet. Seems to speed things up really nicely after I use it regularly.
I use Battery Doctor but not for anything to do with the Battery...i just use it for the memory clean and cache clean options. Dont see any real benefits in the battery stuff it shows so just ignore them.
How often do you use it, like once a day or a week or?
Neither do I.
No. I don't see any point either.
Where's the link the only one I found does not mention memory cache or cleaning features?
I don't see the point either. On my old Android, you need a battery app because the OS didn't handle battery life well enough. But on an iPhone, it's smart enough to do it right.
No need for me as my 6+ comes home with so much power at the end of the day, I power my home AC with it!
BatteryLife if your phone is jailbroken. If not, ibackupbot for both mac and windows, or coconutbattery for mac.
I used to use Battery Doctor when I was with Android. I sensed that I didn't need it once I made the switch to Apple back in Dec 2014 and I was right. I just use the battery percentage.
You can simply delete the Facebook app (or any other app that cached some data) and then just install it again and that will remove all cached data. Generally a better way to go about that kind of thing. Apps will cache data as needed and as long as you have the space they will do it, but if you don't have enough space for it apps will clean the cache themselves as well.
This is the one i have....
Where is the option to clean cache files within apps?
Install Coconut Battery on your Mac and connect your iOS device to it.
No. No point.
not often. once every couple of weeks maybe.
I run battery doctor, it will "clean" the memory.
When I ran it on OS7 it always cleaned the free space on my ipad. Now with 8 it cleans nothing on my air 2 and in the month I've had my 6+ it has cleaned a very small amount of space.
Maybe OS 8 is better at space management? Supposed to condition the battery I believe as well. In that function, I've noticed nothing.
I do on android, Battery Widget Reborn only because it gives me control for "Night Mode" and Widgets.
I don't bother on iPhones because didn't know its available. If Reborn is available I'd buy it.
