    I have to be honest: this app looks poorly designed. I'm not commenting in terms of functionality, just the design. It looks like you drew it up in MS Paint. I know that is harsh, and I hope you'll take it as constructive criticism, not a cut against you personally.

    Also, what is a dual charge alert? And does it really include millions of themes?!

    EDIT: If the dual charge alert is the screenshot of one alert telling you when the main charge is done and another telling you when the trickle charge is done, I'm pretty sure Battery Doctor Pro does this as well.

    Thanks iThinkergoiMac.. I'm still learning to do some artistic stuff on photoshop and constantly improving it.. since I'm a coder I really can't spend much time in PS ... But comments like these help me improve the app. Thanks a ton.. On the comment on Dual Charge Alert.. Well I really can't comment on it.. We introduced the features way before Battery Doctor Pro... in august 2009

    Well, if you introduced the feature before BDP, that's all well and good, but you can't really claim you're the only one. You may be the first, but at this point you're not the only. When I see an app claiming to be the only one that does something when I know it's not, two possibilities come to mind:

    A- The writer of the app didn't bother to do enough research before making the claim of "only" (especially when at least one extremely popular competitor has the same feature)

    or

    B- The writer of the app is blindly claiming "only" when he/she either hasn't done any research at all or, even worse, knows that others out there do the same thing but hopes to get more downloads by claiming "only".

    Obviously, I don't know what you are really thinking, I'm simply reporting what my reaction is to a statement I know isn't quite true. It'd be a much stronger advertisement to simply say you were the first to come out with it (which you say is true) than to say you're the only one (which definitely isn't true).

    Make sense?
