It's been long overdue, but instead of updating the community using a G+ page, I created a G+ Community. You can join this community, start discussions about it's future, add feature requests and bug reports!

Best of all - I'm back, and planning to continue releasing updates for the widget! Come inside, join the community and find out more!

I've been looking at the stats for the widget, and I came back with the following conclusion: Only about half of the active installations of the widget are on Transformer devices. A lot of them are on phones, and some of them are on smaller devices, like the HTC Wildfire, where small memory footprint is paramount! So I thought, maybe I should, maybe the new version should have a simple widget theme as a default one, with the current theme being as a downloadable option. This will allow the users to still get the same look, if they want, while at the same time making the widget lighter on the resources..

One of the new features coming in the next update is the icon in the notification area that will allow you to see your dock battery status no matter what application you're currently using!

This should be the new main place to discuss new developments about the widget. I'm planning to return and continue working on it, but for that I need the community's help. I need your opinion on what's important, and what is wrong, what new features do you want to see most!

Finally, I'm no designer, and a number of people have reached out to me mentioning that the design could be better. If there are any designers out there willing to help and come up with a better design for the widget - I'd gladly accept your help, and I'm sure the community will appreciate it!

The latest public beta is out!

The most important features in this update are:
* A tray icon with the dock battery status!
* A new interface for phones (they'll finally see the battery chart too)
* Market based donations (have been asked for this in the past)

This is most likely the last test release in this cycle. The next release will be in the Android Market again!

Introduction

This is a Battery Widget that displays the status for the internal battery, and the secondary battery in your dock station. It is mostly intended for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet (which is the only device that currently reports the dock battery life). All other devices will only show the main battery icon.

The widget is resizable, and can be as little as 1 cell on your screen, or fill your whole home screen! Advanced options allow you to change the size and the position of the status text, and hide the second battery gauge when it is disconnected.
