I can’t make up my mind if this app is cool, creepy or somewhere in between. Battery Share is an iOS app that will let you follow the battery status of your friend’s phone and will send a notification to your device when their battery is about to die. I’m not sure what the real purpose of the app is though. Does it help you become an all knowing battery overseer where you can email or text your friends to let them know that they better find a charger ASAP? Or maybe it’s just a way to make you feel better when your BFF stops answering your calls and text messages because you can check to see that their phone is dead and it’s not that they’ve stopped loving you. I guess it would be handy for nervous parents, but it just seems a bit weird to follow people’s battery status. Battery Share is priced at $0.99 and can be installed now (if your battery isn’t about to die) by heading over to iTunes.
