Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Android Battery Dog

Description
Android Battery Dog is an open source Android app which is a watchdog application for ANDROID mobiles to support long time analysis of the battery level. The file “/sdcard/BatteryDog/battery.csv” is created containing the recorded battery levels together with a timestamp. The application was tested with a T-Mobile G1.

Simpel service for ANDROID for long time monitoring the battery level. A log file in csv format is created /sdcard/BatteryDog/battery.csv which contains timestamp and all available battery info, like level, temperature and voltage. Includes simple graph.

How to install:

The apk file can be installed on your android phone using package installer. There are a lot of different ways how to do this, I do it the following way:

1.) Install the “Apps Installer” from the market.

2.) Allow unknown-sources (non-market) in the application settings.

3.) Copy the AndroidBatteryDog.apk file into your sdcard (e.g. to the /sdcard/download folder)

4.) Start “Apps Installer”
4.a) scroll to the entry “AndroidBatteryDog” and follow the dialog

Quick Guide:
1. Start the Application
2. Click “Start Battery Dog Service”
3. Leave the application
4. Wait until some data has been collected (battery percentage has changed)
5. Look at the file recorded at /sdcard/BatteryDog/battery.csv
6. Start the Application again
7. Click “Refresh” to see the last 100 records
8. Click “Graph” to view a simple graphic of the recorded data :-)
9. Change the orientation of the phone and see the Graph be redrawn
[works only if orientation-sensiveness is activated in settings]
10. Click “Stop Battery Dog Service” to finish recording
