BatteryInfo Lite – List of Battery Statistics

BatteryInfo Lite is an application that allows you to view stats about your device’s battery including; temperature, current capacity, max capacity, design capacity, charge percentage, cycle count, voltage, boot voltage, serial number and model. It’s a simple little app, nothing too fancy, just a list of the battery stats. But, if that is all you are looking for, you’re good to go with this one! You can get BatteryInfo Lite via the BigBoss source.

Note: This application claims to have a charge percentage accuracy of 0.07% that is compared to the UIDevice’s accuracy of 5%.

WeatherIcon Update – Changed Source?

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WeatherIcon Yesterday, there an update was release for the WeatherIcon mod. The update is through the modmyi source. It doesn’t make any changes to the mod however, it does replace the mod via the source. I’m not sure if David has moved his mod to the modmyi source or if the update to the app mistakenly overwrites the mod. Doug said he had a little bit of trouble with the update on his iPhone 3GS, he had to unisntall and reinstall it…then it worked. I didn’t have any issues with the update on an iPhone 3G running 3.0.

WeatherIcon Update

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WeatherIcon It seems we have another update to the WeatherIcon mod. Once again, I had no problem with the update on an iPhone running 2.2. The mod also seems to be working a little better with the 3.0 firmware. The Status Bar part of the mod is looking much better and it now visible instead of being too high and getting cut off. I did notice that the Status Bar mod does not work correctly if you are adding the date to your Status Bar using SBettings. It did take a few resprings and disabling/enabling to get it to work correctly (Status Bar) but, that could have to do some of my mods and not the actual WeatherIcon app. [Read more…]

WeatherIcon Update 2.1.3

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WeatherIcon There was another update to the WeatherIcon mod. The updated says that it adds “more 3.0 compatibility.” When I tested it, I was able to enable the Status Bar Image and Temp but, they are not aligned correctly. They are too high on the Status Bar and are only partially visible.

The update does make the app compatible with the 2.2 firmware again. When I installed the update on an iPhone running 2.2, it did not go into Safe Mode and both the Icon and Status Bar worked correctly. So, you should be safe to install it now. [Read more…]

WeatherIcon The WeatherIcon mod received a few updates overnight. The update to version 1.8.4 makes a few changes to the application that you will want to know about. The most obvious change is that it removes the icon theme from the package. So, when you update to version 1.8.4 you will no longer see a weather image just the actual weather in degrees.

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WeatherIcon OK, I have held off on writing about this app for a few days because it was getting updated so frequently and I wanted to let a few updates pass before talking about it again. I will say, the updates have made using this application much easier than in the first few version of the app…you can check out that article HERE. So, lets talk about what the app looks like now.

This also means that the temp on your weather icon will mach the temp displayed inside your stock Weather application…which is nice. [Read more…]

WeatherIcon – Updating Weather Icon (Updated…scroll down)

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WeatherIcon I wrote a post this morning about a reflective dock application. I also warned in that post about another application title WeatherIcon (available through the same source). I received word today that the application had been upgraded and no longer creating crashing problems so, I decided to check it out.

Ok, I had this post written this afternoon but, I had to completely rewrite it tonight! We have done a lot of testing on this application and it does work however, it is going to take some explaining. So, take a deap breath and then continue reading!

When you install the WeatherIcon app in Cydia (be sure you install version 1.1.1 or newer), it adds an option to your WinterBoard titled Weather Icon. When you select the Weather Icon option in WinterBoard, it will activate the application. When the app is activated, it changes your stock weather icon to a blank weather icon and then puts the new temp and weather image on top of the blank weather icon. [Read more…]
