Battery widget - how should it look like?

Posted on
  • There are many possibilities a battery widget can look.

    Lets start with some hints:

    • max height is 24 pixel, values for y are 0-23
    • max width is needed to let the next widget figure out where to start

    What does the actual battery:

    • white color for the form
    • green color for the battery status
    • shrinks when charing and shows a smaller battery image

    @allObjects provided some nice designs for a smaller one #30

    @Gordon have you planed to make widgets available in all apps?

    Feel free to add your ideas, wishes and designs to this conversation about the battery widget to make it a even better widget as is already is.

  • Eg: Use color to display battery charged status as fillRect()

    • 0 - 10 % red
    • 11 - 25 % yellow
    • 26 - 100 % green
  • Adding a different battery widget sounds like a great idea.

    And yes, you can now use widgets in any app. Just use Bangle.loadWidgets();Bangle.drawWidgets(­) then Bangle.drawWidgets() whenever you clear the screen - but ideally you just avoid clearing the 24px at the top and bottom.

    Settings now shows the widgets, but I haven't gone around adding them to other apps yet
