Re: Nokia battery monitor

You can do that from the Applications Manager ( May be under Phone-->Settings..) Select options and remove after highlighting it...

Re: Nokia battery monitor

That's strange... in my phones it went under the Internet folder (not Web, just Internet).

If you can't find it, and still you want at least to look at it, you can put it as a shortcut in the homescreen. When you set shortcuts the name of the app should be there among the others, so you can launch it from the homescreen.

For a feedback about use on X6 read here. I hope you have a bettere experience, but if not, join me in contacting Nokia. The more we are, the better possibility we have to see an upgrade!

Re: Nokia battery monitor

Yes, in the app manager, remove is the same as uninstall.

Re: Nokia battery monitor

Just some minor improvements from v1.0, I suppose.

 

The only thing noticable is the v1.0 just say charging when charged, now the v1.1 still show howmany hours.

Re: Nokia battery monitor

So you have tried it, I suppose?

Can you or someone who tested it tell me if there are other differences?

Is it more reliable about the stats (they were all wrong and sometimes erased on my phone)? Does it decrease the battery life like the previous one? Are the purple squares (when selecting anything) still there? Do the user have to agree to the use of his data every time the app is launched or there is a "one time" option?

Forgive all my questioning, but this app made me hate my X6 for the problems I posted here, so I think you can understand. By the way, now I have a C6-01, so Symbian^3.

Thanks!

Re: Nokia battery monitor

Good to know (I installed it on a brand new phone, so it's not my case).

As I just said, I've finally tried it on a Symbian^3 and found that many problems have simply been carried over from previous version... I wonder why it is so difficult to make an app that simply works. No special effects or unusual features, just something that do its job... and it's been made by Nokia itself, that's the odd thing!

This is what I found (I post it here because this board is more visited and probably someone with the right contacts can pass this to the developer team).

I really like this app, so I hope that someone will work to solve the simple problems it shows at the moment.

Re: Nokia battery monitor

I installed Battery Monitor on my N97 Mini. However, it asks for internet connection during the first time adding to my home widget, as well as, every once in a while it request permission to do so. The exact sentence is "Allow connection to network to enable updates to Home screen content? Updates can be disabled from 'Options'."  If I don't allow it to connect to internet, the % will be stuck at whatever number the last time it checked.  Sometimes a hard reboot will fix it temporarily, which upon starting up the widget, it will ask for network connection again.  In rare cases, I have to re-install to resolve it.

 

Nothing in my phone's home screen has any other widgets that requires internet connection.  In fact, my phone's home screen consists only Clock widget, favorite contacts, Wifi/WLAN scan (which is off all the time unless if I want to check for wifi), Nokia's message preview (for miss call/sms), and some apps shortcuts. 

 

Anyone has similar issues, or know if it's an issue with my phone or Battery Monitor itself?

 

TIA

Re: Nokia battery monitor

This is a problem that also a person I know (who used the program as a widget) reported.

The problem is in the app itself, which has been proven to have some problems.

I already used the feedback mail to report the things I found, so I hope that we will see a new version on Ovi Store soon.

Re: Nokia battery monitor

The same oppinion; it's already a mess that other apps doesn't have version displayed, but to mess with your own application, that's too much even for me...

I will try it and then give my feedback.

Well, yet another software highlight from Nokia, why do they even bother?

 

It does not only have problems on ^3 also on the N97 (no big surprise there, the N97 IS a problem).

 

  • Download title says 1.2, app info says 1.1 as of yesterday.
  • Homescreen widget wants to go online. What for?
  • Homescreen widget, even when offline, prevents 3G or WLAN connection from being released after use by any other app. Problem goes away as soon as Battery monitor widget is removed.
  • Home screen widget freezes, stuck at charging or some arbitrary percentage level until phone reboot.
  • It forgets usage data from past days, only showing home screen and others for some past days, but not for others (Note: the current day data was correct for the days wrongly displayed)
  • And itr is slow as a s slug, drawing the screen in the main app takes up to 10 seconds

Off to the bin you go, Battery Monitor. Yet another of a decent idea very poorly executed by Nokia and thus rendered utterly useless.

Ever seen a black lemon? They turn black when they rot. My N97 is black. 'nuff said
