    Hi all,
    I use Battery Doctor to record charging my iPad and it has been working well until I need to do a full battery charge (letting the battery run down to 10% or less). I was in the habit of doing this once a month but on the last two occasions Battery Doctor has not recorded the charge as a full charge. I haven't changed any settings in the app so I am baffled as why this has happened. I have now deleted the app but this has also deleted my charging record :(
    Has anyone else experienced similar behaviour with Battery Doctor?
    Mike

    That's interesting, because my Battery Doctor app just disappeared for some reason about 2 weeks ago. When I went back to the "purchased apps" list (it was free anyway) I no longer found it there.
    I would be interested if you still see that app on your list after deleting it off your iPad. I don't much care anyway because about once a month I get my iPad down to 10% for a full charge and don't miss a charging history any more. I'm finding there is too much info overload for my brain as it is these days;)
    Regards, Andrew

    If you mean this app, it's no longer offered in the AppStore.

    Yes that's the one Sci. I wonder what the story is behind that. As apps went, it was one of the better battery charge loggers.

    So that seems to be the answer, guys. For some reason Apple seems to have kicked them out of the fair-ground.

    Hi guys,

    Just found it, searched "battery doctor" and up it came. Have now re-installed it to see how things go. I wonder if we are talking about the same app? It is actually called Kingsoft Battery Doctor HD and is by Beijingsoft.
    Still I will give it another try, :)

    BTW, I did find it in the purchased app section in the App Store. Can't be the same one can it?

    No, it's not the same one. This is the icon for the battery doctor app that's no longer in the AppStore.

    This is the app I am on about. It looks different somehow. Typical of me if I got things wrong ;)
    Hope this clarifies as this is very puzzling.
