Battery Widget v0.9.1

What does it do?
This app adds a widget in the dashboard that displays some of your battery's stats. This information includes (from left to right) percentage(%), current (mA), temperature(C), and volts(V). These values are updated whenever you activate the dashboard window or turn the screen on. With this setup, it works perfectly while on the lock screen too.

This app been tested and works on the TouchPad, Pre3, Veer*, Pre2*, and Pre*.
* with Enyo Maps update

How do I use it?
To change the color of text, you'll need to enter new color codes into the text boxes. Not familiar with these color codes? Here's a handy tool you can use: ColorPicker.com. The sliders will let you change the text size. The widget will need to be reloaded if you want to update it's styles.

How does it look?

More screenshots attached to this post.

Where can I get it?
Battery Widget | webOS Nation
* You will also need to have Dr.Battery installed since this app uses it's service.

Want the source code?

Changelog
v0.9.1
- Now compatible with the Veer.
- New icons and loading card.
- Added options to customize the widget.
- Moved contact info to the app menu.
- Some minor layout changes.

You need to have Dr.Battery installed too. You can find it in Preware. If you're still having issues after that, let me know.

It's only his 3'th post. Welcome Garrett92C to this community.
Seems to be something wrong with the thanks calculation:
"Thanked 3,023 Times in 1,972 Posts"

EDIT: BTW: Dr.Battery suggest trying out this app: Dr. Battery

I tried the link on my phone and it worked. I'll be submitting an updated version to Preware when I get home from work (about 9 hours from now). Not sure why some people are having issues with the Dropbox link... :/

Any plans to migrate this to Preware? Does this work with 1.4.5.1 devices that got the Enyo map update?

Yea, I'll be submitting it to Preware after work.

I don't know. Don't have any 1.4.5 devices to test with...

I would be happy to try it. I can't get to dropbox (blocked on purpose) so I have to wait or you can PM me if you would email it to me. I am no longer using my Pre Plus as a phone but use it regularly around the house as a wifi pad.

Running into issues getting this working on the Veer. I don't have a device or emulator to test with, so not sure what I can do. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.
