Unfortunately, batteries have a knack for dying when we’re running late, and no doubt many of us have been on the receiving end of several missed calls and texts simply because our phone couldn’t turn on.
Battery Share warns selected friends and loved ones when you have a low battery. It also notifies you when their phone is about to die. This gives you the opportunity to contact them before they become unavailable. The app also allows you to see the battery power level of your friend's device, plus, the app will display if their device is charging, or is in low-power mode. Notifications are customizable, so you can select exactly who you’ll receive notifications from. The app also includes internet calling (VoIP) capabilities, so you can stay in touch with friends via the app.
Just install the app and invite friends to share their battery status by sending them a message. When a friend accepts your invitation using the Battery Share app on their device, you can start following their battery status immediately.
• Quickly see the battery status of your friends and family
• Low Battery Notifications from your followers
• Simple privacy controls
• VoIP calling
• Gravity-animated battery icons
• Quickly add contacts with 3D Touch
*internet connection required
*low battery notifications may not be delivered if network conditions are poor, or the phone is quickly powered down.

Great concept - missing ability to track just your own devices
Great job and great idea, but this app is missing one thing. Please allow for keeping track of your own devices...right now there is merely the option to choose which devices battery to share with contacts, but how about a my devices section as well? Obviously you can hack around this by having different accounts on each device, but that's a hassle. Thanks for listening and keep up the great work - I get the feeling we'll see this functionality in the next update :)
Hard to set up, didn’t work
It was hard to set this up because it relies on two different iCloud accounts, and I wanted to monitor another phone on the same iCloud account. So I had to set up a new iCloud account for the other phone. Even after that, it didn’t work. I finally got the phones to recognize each other’s batteries, but they just say “updating“ and never actually give the battery status. I also wanted alerts when the other phone is below a certain level, but I think this probably does not give that kind of option.
Can anyone tell me if you have to be on the app to get the current battery percentage of the other person? Or should it do it on its own? Mine is only showing/updating when the other person turns the app on, on their phone as well.
