Great App Great Potential

This is what I've been looking for. It works really well. Really great job! I would like to see a few more options.
1) Ability to adjust the threshold of when a notification is sent for each device. For instance, I should be able to set a notification for my iPhone when it reaches a certain battery level both high and low, ie, I get a notification when my iPhone drains below 40% (user defined) and when it is charged to 80% (user defined)
2) Not sure it’s possible, but track the battery levels of bluetooth connected devices on the Mac, so if I have a wireless keyboard and the battery level is shown in the bluetooth settings, can this app track that device? The battery info is available via bluetooth preferences.
3) Create a Mac Widget so I can remove the icon in the task bar.

Hey JL,

These are all terrific suggestions and I have thought of them before! For 1, you can do that with the iOS application, so just click into the Mac and there you will see notification sliders for exactly what you described, and this will notify all you devices when these thresholds are crossed. For your second suggestion, I think that’s a great idea and as a keyboard owner myself it is something I will definitely be adding in the future so keep posted :) as for the third suggestion, I just added a big sur widget (same as the iOS 14 one) so u can now use cloud battery without having it open! Thanks so much for the review!

Great App, Love the design, Update issues

Thank you so much for this app, it really does work great in notifying me to charge my laptop.
However, since the last update the BigSur widget has been glitching a lot. It stays stuck to a certain percentage and does not change no matter what I do. I tried:
- Opening the app through the menu bar, resetting the "tracking". Through the menu bar icon I can see the correct percentge, however the widget is still stuck.
- Reinstalling the app (the precentage updated once but then stayed stuck right there).
- I tried restarting my mac multiple times, but that did not change the widget at all.

iOS is working great, no problems with that at all. Hopefully you can find a solution to this issue, it is messing up the notifications.

Otherwise great app, thanks once again for this!

Great concept, poorly executed!

This is a much needed utility, designed around a great concept!

Unfortunately, it actually works so poorly, it provides a false sence of security and if you rely on it's notifications to prevent you from over-charging your batteries, you will overcharge your batteries for hours, not minutes.

I've randomly checked my batteries and found my watch at 100% when I got my initial notification that my watch was at 61%. Upon taking my watch off its charger, I then got another notification that I had exceeded 61%. Some time later, it finally tells me I am at 100%.

From my experience, without this app, I never would have allowed it to charge as long as it would charge while I depended on this app. I suspect, sitting in the background, it doesn't get updated enough to be of value, but even in the foreground, it lags far behind the actual battery state for any device other than the device the app you are looking at exists on.

I sincerely hope they fix it, or even better, Apple will see the concept and include all airpods and Apple Pencil in the mix with accurate information and LOUD notifcations that don't depend on currently set volume or DND settings.

But, again, an excellent and much needed concept.
