Battery information is a bigger deal to some than others, but if you wish battery monitoring could be a bit more fun than it is out of the box on a stock iPhone or iPad, then we think you’re doing to love a newly released jailbreak tweak dubbed GreenPotion by iOS developer Plat-Ykor.
The name “GreenPotion” is a dead giveaway in terms of what you can expect this tweak to do. Once you install it, you can tap on a new button situated between the Lock Screen’s Camera and Flashlight shortcut buttons to invoke a potion-like animation that displays real-time battery information, as shown in the screenshot examples above.
It’s worth noting that GreenPotion does more than simply add a fun and quirky battery animation to the Lock Screen, it also incorporates the following features:
- Speak the battery level out loud in your preferred language
- Provide haptic feedback when you toggle the tweak
- Animate the potion level effect
- Use alternative ways of invoking the potion effect
- Toggle Low Power Mode by tapping and holding on the Lock Screen’s toggle button
- And more…
As you might’ve also noticed, the tweak appears green when your battery level is acceptable, yellow when Low Power Mode is enabled, and so on.
Once installed, GreenPotion adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where users can toggle the aforementioned features on or off on demand:
