Battery Reader is an app that keeps you informed about the status of your phone battery by reading out the battery level. The app can be configured to read out in a male or female voice. Of course, I selected the female voice option. Go buy a shawarma if that ticks you. LOL. It also gives you options to have the battery level read to you at intervals of 10%, so you can pick as many options from 10% to 100%.
Battery Reader promises to relieve you of the worry of forgetting the charger connected for a long time when the battery is fully charged, which may damage the battery, because app will ask you to unplug the charger once the battery is fully charged.
I haven’t had it running on my phone for more than 30 minutes, and so don’t have much feedback to give. However, I ran a quick test: when the phone is being charged and I unplug the charger, it says, “Please unplug charger from power source to save energy.” That is odd, and sounds like what it should say when the phone is fully charged while plugged in. I would expect it to say something like, “Your phone has been disconnected from the power source.” This would be good for times when someone unplugs your phone without your knowledge, or public power supply goes off.
The app is developed by Ashraf Alshahawy and is available for Android 4.0 devices and later.
