Seems to be a very good product.
Works nice with my iPhone and my iPad.
Alas, it does not work with my old ipod 1
Apparently, it needs at least IOS 7. I have only IOS 4... ;-(

update:
Fast response from the support: ipod 1th gen not supported.
I understand ;-)
It's nearly as old as me !

You get this functionality (varied battery level warnings) built into iStat Menus (often available in a bundle from MacUpdate so you may already own it). This is a great free offer for those who don't have iStat Menus but it's one less utility to run if you do own iStat Menus. Highly recommend 20% battery level warnings as 10% doesn't leave you much time.

Have been using iBetterCharge for a couple weeks. It has been a great help. I'm the type to let my phone battery get down to 5% or less. Often being distracted, I wait too long and the phone dies. It is inconvenient to plug in the phone for a few minutes before it will turn back on. iBetterCharge solves my complacency. Even better, they (Softorino) listen to suggestions. They wants to provide a great product and take suggestions seriously.

Very often the iPhone warning of 20% or 10% is enough to charge a battery and feel yourself comfortable. But sometimes the situations happen to be unexpected, when your phone is not near at hand and you totally forget about it. iBetterCharge is a great solution for such cases. Nice app, recommend to try.

Used to be great but it stopped working sometime early this year (2016). Developer asked me to reinstall then, when it still didn't work, told me to wait for a new version. That was in Feb or March I think. 3 stars for support responsiveness and for how well it used to work. Hope it gets fixed.
Also, noticed that the self-update now results in an error so it seems the developer has abandoned the update url...

I've been TRYING to like this but it is constantly losing the connection with the phone unless it is connected by usb. It works only about 20% of the time and then only to show a near full charge. I wish you could fix that!!!

This is a great application, but it seems to have stopped working for me now after I installed iTunes (11.2.1). I have done all the suggested troubleshooting (re-attach via USB, unlock device and trust computer, enable Wi-Fi sync), but when I re-attach my devices, they appear in iBetterCharge, but after 30 minutes or so they disappear. iBetterCharge just seems to constantly search for them even though the device is sitting next to my iMac.

I gave this app a "5" because it does what it says. It is very functional and useful to me because it alerts me to the battery status of the several iOS devices I have. I am more likely to charge my devices than before - all due to this simple reminder tool. No complaints!

I saw an article about iBatteryCharge, and thought it sounded helpful. I downloaded it and it has made things so easy for me using my Mac and iPhone together. I would recommend it to anyone who uses their tech products frequently, as I do, because it keeps tabs on your phone right at your fingertips. I haven't come close to running out of battery life since I installed it.

Neat little app that does what it says. Very useful for me who have many devices to keep track of. I have requested a feature that allows us to set individual notification levels per device, since I have different charging needs for each device. Support team responded in a very professional and positive way. Try it!

Usefull app. I've encountered the spinning ball issue but the support team did a gréât and quick job to help me. And by the time a new version is now out that correct this issue for everyone. So good app with a great team working behind. Très bonne application. J'ai rencontré le problème de plantage. J'ai contacté l'équipe de support en anglais et ils m'ont permis de résoudre mon problème en un instant le tout en ayant répondu en moins de 24 heures. Depuis la nouvelle version est sortie et le résoudre ce problème pour tout le monde. En résumé une bonne application utile et gratuite développée parle une équipe tout aussi bonne.

latest version 1.0.3 works initially then my iPhone disappears and iBetterCharge starts spinning perpetually. Great idea that's close to working as advertised. Also needs Setup instructions on developer's website since its not 100% intuitive, even for geeks

Great app! Had a bit of problem with devices "disappearing" from time to time but the latest upgrade fixed it. A nice future upgrade would be if notification would be free to choose by the user. Now it´s 5, 10, 20 or 50%.

Excellent app, does what it's supposed to do. Price is great :-) Support responses quick. They are working hard fixing the "beachball after restart" bug. Untill it arrives: -Open 'Applications' folder -Go to Utilities>Activity Monitor -Locate 'iBetterCharge' -Choose 'Quit Process' -Launch iBetterCharge once again from your Applications folder & it should work properly now.

Okay kids, here's Bad Uncle Leo's capsule review of iBetterCharge: Upshot? Great idea, crippled by NO DOCUMENTATION. As you've read below, a number of folks have NOT been able to get this to work, or only got it to work via USB. You MUST enable "Sync this iPhone/iPad/iPodTouch via WiFi" by plugging your device into iTunes, checking the little box and syncing. Otherwise no way. Now.. did I read this on Softorino's website? NOPE. I had to Google it and found it by reading LIFEHACKER. That's crappy documentation, folks. Crappy. Bad Dev no cookie. Okay, that aside: This is a great idea, and the Dev needs to add a FAQ to their site about requiring iTunes WiFi (or network, actually) syncing. As in, if WiFi syncing works great for you, this app will. And if it doesn't... well... you get the idea. 5 stars for a great idea. -1 for NO DOCS. -1 for dicey WiFi sync, dependent on iTunes... but if you're not affected.. give'em a star.

Good idea, but doesn't work at all for me. Doesn't recognize for iPhone or iPad without plugging in. When either device is plugged in, the battery indicator always reads 0%. As soon as I unplug either device, the app loses connection and simply spins "Looking for Devices..." Obviously still has some bugs to work out.

This is a great little utility. Does one thing and does it extremely well. Have tested with multiple devices: an iPhone 5s, iPad 3, iPhone 3GS and an iPhone 5. All are being monitored properly. FYI, you'll probably have to physically plug the device in to your Mac before iBC recognizes it for the first time, but I'm not sure if that's an inconvenience (and an exceedingly minor one at that) or a necessity.
