Juiced is here

Juiced, our iPhone/iPod touch battery status app is available now in the App Store.

A while ago a few of our users asked if we could do a battery status app. At the time (ie. before OS 3.0) it wasn’t possible and to be honest we couldn’t see the need for it.
Now that the App Store is awash with battery apps it seems that a lot of people want them – and who are we to argue? So we thought we’d set about making the best battery status app there was. We looked at the competition and were frankly not impressed – most have dreadful graphics or use bought in stock images of batteries (in fact, some of them use the same pictures). Juice was the result.

Juiced. The color changes as your charge drains

When you launch Juiced you’ll see your battery fill with the mysterious glowing fluid that powers your iPhone. As it drains away the color changes from green through orange to red and the glow slowly fades.

Put it on charge and watch your battery pulse with an electric blue glow as the fluid starts to fill up.

Juiced shows you as much or as little battery info as you need. The beautifully rendered graphics accurately reflect the remaining battery charge. Tap anywhere to toggle a more detailed overlay (lines and numbers) so you can see exactly how much juice you’ve got.

Rotate the screen for the landscape view which gives you a much more detailed breakdown of what this percentage actually means to you in terms of: Talk time, Standby time, Internet use, Audio playback & Video playback.

Try it out and let us know what you think – it’s a lot more fun than it should be.
