HTC Sense Battery AppGreat news for us HTC Hero and Droid Eris owners, HTC has just placed four free widgets onto Android Market. The widgets will only work for Android handsets using the Sense UI. Here are descriptions of the four, as listed on Androlib:

  • Battery: Tap the widget to see more battery information.
  • Dice: Tap the dice first, and then simply shake (do not throw!) your phone to “throw” the dice.
  • Tip Calculator: You can adjust the tip percentage and the number of people in the group before calculating.
  • Today in History: In this widget, learn about significant events and famous people who were born or who died on this day in history. Tap a link to view the corresponding article on Wikipedia.

Battery is probably my favourite but that is because it is the most practical. Hopefully this means HTC will be adding more widgets for Android handsets running the Sense UI in the future.

Hey Harry,
dont try to start the app. You need to add it to your homescreen, its a widget.

click “+” -> HTC Widgets -> Batterie (I assume you’re german) -> choose where to place it on your screen.
