Has anyone tried this app yet. Seems to have good reviews.

Haven't tried it, but it seems like a good alternative to Juice Defender.

I use jd consistently and have never missed a call or text. It doesn't shut off the radio for that unless you change the settings.

thanks!

i dont know why battery saving programs like to kill your radio if your signal or battery is low......that's the whole point of having a cell phone!!

None of these "battery saving" apps work. And all the things they do can be done manually. If something has to run in the system to "save" battery... it uses battery attempting to save battery.

Well i notice that when i dont use JD i lose a good few hours on my battery.

JD does help when i ran W/O it on i went from 100% to 92% in 10 mins all i did was mess with some settings in the menu of the phone not JD.

task manager
I thought that's what the Task manager on the phone is for? I remember when I first got my phone at sprint they told me not to download any battery savers or task killers because they "bump heads" with the stock task manager. If I'm wrong please let me let me know.

No things have changed reason is they think that if you use the TW Task Manager it will kill thee battery app but if you know how to use either both for example Juice Defender has the option to stay in status bar so it won't be killed if you kill apps on the Task Manager, but why would you kill the app in the 1st place if you knew it saves battery.

Any results you say you get with these so called battery saving apps. Was because you were too lazy to do it manually. Had you done it manually you would have gotten much better "results."
