Post [WIDGET][1.6+] Android Battery Widget 1.0

Hi there, this is my first app/widget. Basically a simple battery widget for the android home screen which displays your phones battery life inside the green android logo. It would be great to here your thoughts on it Thanks for reading!

Nice widget.
Somehow the market download takes forever (slow cloud perhaps)
One suggestion: A different charging icon for fast(AC)/slow(USB) charging.

Its hard to find this on the market unless you add a few words from "west coast labs" to the search.

Thanks for your replys guys!

britoso: Yes i agree with the different symbols for charging types. The download speed im unsure about, Its only 129Kb.

ts3li0t: Yeah i noticed this was a problem with some devices. A restart of the device has fixed it for the two cases i have seen with friends devices. Hopefully that will work for you. (It doesn't have an app launcher so its only in the list of widgets if thats why you cant see it). I have also seen it with other developers widgets too.. odd :P

Thanks for taking the time guys, really appreciate it!

The battery percentage text gets half cut off when my tablet (touchpad, cm9) is in landscape mode. Maybe the widget should be a few pixels taller.

Default 1.0.1

Small Update: Level now drops when it's less than 11% and again at less than 6%, with crossed eyes! Orange level at less than 31%.

And thanks for pointing that out britoso. I have only just seen your comment, but will fix it for the next update. What launcher are you using if I may ask so that i could test it out to make sure its running well? Thanks!

late post sry, it must have been a problem with the launcher (nova/tribuchet), now that widgets can be re-sized its a non-issue.

Default 1.0.2

Another small update (Not worthy of a new thread) :P

v1.0.2, Lightning bolt appears when plugged into DC, still a USB symbol when connected to a computer or tablet USB port. (Tiny extra; Green background when adding widget to home screen.)

Cheers!
