    Is there any other app that will do what Screebl does on our Incredible???? I've heard it seems to actually use up more battery on the Incredible!

    I believe what I read is that the problem is that your battery use app is recognizing Screeble as Display.

    The battery usage it shows as screeble is actually the battery used by your display.

    Or so I've read, anyway.

    The Screebl Devs are great at pushing updates. I'd bet in less than 2 weeks, they'll have good support for the Incredible.

    It keeps your Incredible screen from timing out and going blank while you are reading something! Great idea!!!

    Well, that's only half of what Screebl does. As noted above it keeps the screen displayed when it's being held but automatically turns it off (after a short timeout) when it's lying flat on a table or desk. Very handy utility for those who don't want to be bothered to turn off the screen each time they're through looking at the screen.
