    I can't believe what a huge battery hog this app is....it's cool but 42% of my battery yesterday went to this thing...and I wasn't even using it that much...anyone else having this happen...?

    Doesn't seem to use much of mine, but I don't use it everyday.

    I'm pretty sure that this is the app that's been transmitting 20 to 30 Mb of data PER HOUR on my D1. I wish I knew just what it was transmitting. Talk about a battery killer though...

    I found that if you go into the settings in the app and set the background Notifications to never... it uses a lot less juice..
