Review Gauge Battery Widget 2014

Jay Feldman
7.5Good
Simple interface, modern design
Arguably pointless, weak functionality
Gauge Battery Widget 2014 for Android has some great custom options and widgets. It’s one of the better battery apps I've tried.
There’s no shortage of battery monitoring apps out there. So why bother with Gauge Battery Widget 2014? Well, the interface is nice, runs smooth and the widgets have several custom options; you can set the color scheme, opacity and size all very easily. And the widgets look really nice on screen. They have an old analog look, similar to a car speedometer. There's 3 size options, all of which look sporty and are easy to read.
The menus are simply presented. Nothing real fancy or unusual going on. A lot of people like these battery monitors because they are trying to squeeze every last drop of juice out of their batteries and economize system resources. Personally, I think an extended battery is the way to go. I see it as a little ironic that we all have these killer ‘wireless’ gizmos, yet most people are tethered to a wired charging method. An extended battery will make your phone fatter, but at least you’ll have plenty of juice to make it through the day and none of the charging headaches.
The app's visual feedback is nice. I like the status bar monitoring too, but it all begs the question – if you have to keep that close an eye on your battery, is your device still serving your life, or are you in servitude of its life? These gizmos have us on a very short leash and the lines are getting blurry as to which one of us is really in charge. At this rate, charging ports may one day be more valuable than crude oil.
Gauge Battery Widget 2014 is another solid entry in the world of battery monitoring. Personally, I don’t think batteries merit this much of our time or consciousness. I've done all the battery and system resource juggling before, and truthfully, it made little difference. Nice app, but I’ll stick with my extended battery and worry-free use of my phone.
