    I'm using screeble on my incredible. the app is working but I noticed my battery died in 8 hour today. so I took a look and screeble is taking up 43% any ideas?

    Get rid of it (the app, not the phone)!

    It takes nothing on my Droid .... probably not compatible with your incredible.

    Are you talking about "Battery Use" from "About Phone?" If so, that's odd. I have Screeble and it doesn't even show up.

    yes under battery use. it'll power cycle and see. but yes it is weird. that's why I'm posting it here. I use to use it on my Droid no problem.

    I suggest you send a note to the developer and inquire about its compatibility
    with the Incredible. I'd do that only after trying it again for a day (after rebooting) to be sure it wasn't an anomaly of some sort.

    Screebl does run continuously to check the phone's orientation but there is simply no way it could be expected to use 43% of your entire batter over an eight hour day.

    I have had the same issue as well (Screebl is actually showing over 90% of my battery usage). The thing is, it doesn't like "Display" at all when Screebl is running, so it appears to simply be the way that the Incredible is reading.

    The program still works the same way, it just throws off the battery usage reading. From everything that I can see, it doesn't hurt the battery life at all.

    I emailed the developer about this a few days ago and he stated that he has received a lot of email about the issue, and most likely it's simply related to the way HTC reads the program and there will not be much he can do. He is looking into the issue however, to see if there is a solution.
