Football Color Battery Widget – Review

Android owners with a passion for football (soccer) will no doubt be looking for fun ways to ‘footy’ up there Android themes and home screens, if you’re one of them, check out Apperture’s ‘Football Color Battery Widget’.

By no means complex, this neat little widget has been designed to display your battery status (in percentile) in the shape of a football, which you can drag onto any one of your Android home screens. This is quite a cool and gimmicky way of displaying the current status of your battery life, and adds to your Footy regalia.

After downloading and installing the app from Google Play, go to your ‘Widgets’ section and you’ll notice a new Football icon. Simply hold down on the icon for a second and soon enough you will be able to drag it to where you want on your Android home screen. You can set the widget up on multiple home screens, simply repeat the process and get dragging.

Apperture have gone one step further and allow you to customise the widget. Once on your home screen, simply touch the football and you’ll be presented with a number of colour options. By changing text, hexagon and ball colour you can quickly adopt your team’s colour scheme, which is important to us footy folk, right?

We’ve been told by Appeture that the widget is resizeable in Android versions 4.2 and higher, otherwise you are presented with two default size options. The picture opposite demonstrates the resizeable feature, now there are no excuses for running empty!

The widget as far as we can tell is very accurate and represents battery life. The app is available now from Google Play store and costs 50p to download. Data wise, it only weighs in at 527K. There is a similar application currently on Google Play however it doesn’t allow for the customisation of colours – the feature that really makes this app stand out. Go grab the widget and let us know what you think!
