does this battery saver app work?
And how does it work?
Its in the Top 10 paid apps.
3000+ reviews says it works apparently.
I'm sceptical as .

No app can save the battery because the app itself will take energy to run. It goes against the laws of science if an additional app can reduce the battery consumption. However, the battery saving mode that comes with OS 7.1 lower the screen's backlight, hence saving the battery.
I found the best way to save the battery is to lower the screen brightness, stop the auto refresh of FB, Twitter, RSS, etc feeds (you will still get push notifications) and turn off the wifi.
I would not buy a battery saving app.

At first the battery saving mode in 7.1 was set to be enabled when the battery goes down to 30%; however, I, just now, chose to set it to "always enabled". Let's see if it actually makes a difference.

no, never trust these kind of battery saving apps. They just dont work and you'll waste your money for nothing.. If you're on an os 7 device upgrade your os to 7.1, then you'll get battery saving mode made by rim themselves.

Battery Watch in App World puts the current % of battery remaining on the home screen. I had an older version without the ads, but I can't seem to find that version anywhere.
