Without amperes, your iPhone is just a useless rectangle of glass and dead circuitry.
We’re talking about the unit of electrical current, of course, but it’s almost as true of Amperes, the ingenious and indispensable battery info app from CrioSoft.
This vital tool helps you monitor your phone’s health, giving you information on everything from the charging rate of your battery to the effectiveness of your charging cable, and much more besides. And now a new feature has been added.
Thanks to the latest update from CrioSoft, you can compare charger test scores with other users of the same device type globally. After all, measurements are meaningless if you don’t know what you’re measuring them against.
But this “natural extension” of Amperes’ functionality is just one among countless features. Let’s remind ourselves of those now.
We’ve already mentioned that Amperes lets you know how effectively your charging cable is performing, but it also lets you compare chargers directly, and measure the charging speed of your wireless charger too.
Plus, it lets you compare charging sources, whether you’re plugged into the mains or using a powerbank to fill your phone with precious electricity. Amperes also boasts an alarm system, notifying you when your phone has reached the desired level of charge.
All of the data the app generates on the performance of your hardware is represented in a highly digestible color-coded format, and you can export these results to review them on another device.
And Amperes’ functionality doesn’t stop at charging-related measurements. It gives you the works, including information on disk space, memory, and even the thermal status of your phone.
Basically, this app is the equivalent of a full health check-up, letting you know in an instant how robust your hardware is, and exactly where any problems lie.
As soon as you use Amperes once, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. Going on a trip without testing your charging kit first will seem like an impossibly antiquated act of wanton recklessness. Being stranded without a working phone will become a thing of the past.
You can download Amperes for $1.99 on the App Store right now.
