Highly recommend, with one caveat
Great little app to optimize your battery's overall life. Highly recommend, with one caveat: I, unlike another reviewer, hate to be audibly reminded of anything. Just the pop-up is enough for me, thanks. Hope a future version will include this option.
Inexpensive, and doesn’t do much
The value added here is the audible reminder. If you have the wherewithal to check your menu bar visually once in a while, you can enable the “Show battery status in menu bar” option in the Energy Saver system preference panel and select Show Percentage in the menu provided by the resulting menu bar icon. The benefit of 40/80 has a practical useful range of 30 or 35 to 85 or 90 percent, so little is lost by getting close with this manual monitoring approach. I have a mid 09 MacBook Pro which includes the nifty battery indicator on the left side (button and 8 tiny LEDs). For those who also have MPBs with this feature, you can achieve a similar effect without turning on the Mac. 40% occurs with 3 lights steady and 4th flashing and 80% is roughly indicated by 7 lights on and the 8th flashing.On the other hand (sorry, just saw Fiddler on the Roof last night), go ahead and support the developer by buying this for the information value you received by finding the app!
Does it really need 10.8+ or newer?Please make it support 10.7!
