Battery app for Lumia 710

Hello everyone, I hope you can help me with a problem I am having.

 

I own a Nokia Lumia 710 handset, originally on Vodafone, now unlocked.  I am trying to find a battery app for the phone, but I am having no luck whatsoever.t  I want a simple app that will put the battery percentage on the front screen, with just a battery icon and a percentage total, to say that I have, say, 25% battery left.  I know there is a battery option in the settiings menu, but I don't want to hunt it out, I want it right there in front of me, where I can see it immediately.  I have looked on the Marketplace, but I cannot find an app of this kind.  Does such an app exist?

 

Kind regards

I don't think there is anything available yet.

 

This may not be possible due to restrictions within the OS itself not allowing access to that

 

You could have a look on here

There doesn't seem to be any app which does this.

 

It's kind of strange how there isn't.

It must be something to with Microsoft they must have locked out app ability to view battery information. I can't see why they would do this though as these types of app can be quite usefull.

I remember itunes store had loads of apps which could be used to check the battery performance. Maybe in a future update.

Currently it's only possible to have a battery status live tile app if your phone is Chevron or Developer unlocked. This is due to restrictions in the operating system.
