Finally got tired of dealing with this and uninstalled it. Too much trouble, and it's not getting updates anymore

Ok, but this is a FREE homebrew app, that "breaks" the Marketplace guidelines for app development. So there are bound to be little nits that may not work perfectly for everyone.

On my Surround, instead of prying off my hard shell and then prying off the back cover to switch out the battery, I simply picked up a few USB battery backups. Now I always have 7800mAh at my disposal. I can walk around the house with them and charge while I use my phone. I don't have a battery option for my L900, so the USB chargers really come in handy. Point is, there are options.

As I only reboot both phones on average once per month, dont have to worry much about losing the Battery Meter live tile. Maybe one in 5 times I have to reactivate the time and set back to update every 10 minutes. Otherwise, the app works perfectly on both phone. Sent a cup of coffee to this dev long ago for his hard work.

Is it possible to disable the backtile? Or is there coding work needed?

I am not sure if I am still welcome in this thread after abandoning this project for so long, and there's no excuse after how great you all have been in the months that I have spent working on the app!

I had a very busy time, with a lot to do for work and for university there simply wasn't any time for my own projects anymore. But well as I said before, there's no excuse for just disappearing and I am sorry for that.

I am still very busy, but I will go through all the unread emails and messages and I will answer each one of that even if I am really late with some..

Anyway, I have some good news. I have ported BatteryStatus to WP8, and it already passed certification and should be in the marketplace very soon. (http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/st...2-9ca63a4f7014) Also, I am working on a completely rewritten version that makes use of all the great WP8 APIs. It should be ready very soon as well. Regarding the old WP7 version, I'll try to also fix some bugs there if it is still needed.

Thanks to those who supported me all the time, to those who find the time to read this and sorry to all of you for taking so much time to return to this project.

Glad you're already working on a WP8 version. I always used your app on all my WP7 devices already. Even better that it'll be now an official app. Following your link tells me though that it is designed for 480x800, which isn't supported by Lumia 920. :/ Is that just because it's not available as of yet, or haven't you really changed the supported resolutions?

Yes that's right. The current version is just the Windows Phone 7 version that I made compatible with WP8, so it is just the small resolution. The next version will feature all the resolutions, and the different live tile sizes, the lockscreen text and remaining time

That's really good news. I hope you'll keep the tile with the changing background color. That has always been my favorite. Let me know if you need a beta tester. I have a dev unlocked Lumia 920.
