Meterberry has long been one of my favorite apps for the BlackBerry. While I don’t have the same need for Meterberry on the Bold 9650 as I did on the Storm 9530, I just installed the application again as I really like the data it provides on power usage.
Meterberry gives me an easy way to check the percent to which my battery is charged. I know we have the battery indicator, but you can have 5 bars showing and only be at 70% charge. I know I can go into Options | Status to get the percent charged but with Meterberry I have that displayed right on the home screen. Some themes show the charge as percent vs bars but I am not a huge fan of themes and their associated overhead. There is also Alt + Shift + H which gives you tons of information including battery percent. However, for me it is worth the $3.99 for Meterberry.
