After the recent Google's update for KitKat 4.4, I am discouraged and disappointed with Google's actions against developers.
I think "wakelock" info must be available for all Android users, because it is their property. They should be able to know what is happening to their phone while they are not using it.
Until KitKat the apps like BBS, Gsam and WLD gave users all these detail statistics from Google's hidden battery statistics repositories.
But starting from KitKat, they completely restricted it. Only the ROOTed users might be able to see the wakelock statistics for now. They might even disable it also in the future.
I wrote email to the person who did this. But no effect.
I have some idea about organizing a public Online(or maybe offline) demonstration against the Google's restricting developers and users from their freedom of knowing the detail battery statistics.
Maybe it sounds dumb, but we could join all together and do something against Google's change.
There are millions of users who resolved wakelock issues and doubled their battery life, who saved their phone from resetting or doing all costly things.
We can use famous social networks like a facebook page, or Google Plus page then
post our demands until we reach Google.
What do you think ? How much are you eager to support this idea.
