    I do have it fully operational now, though it's been less than 24 hours. I have not noticed any problems with push notifications. I haven't manually set any of the app preferences though.

    I caught that it turned off GMail Sync totally. Overrode the setting in the app then turned GMail sync back on. Crossing fingers that it sticks once off learning mode.

    Odd. It didn't do that for me. Did you change the default setting for gmail within the app?

    On the reporting front, after a day, yes, it does seem to have helped battery by a bit. Nothing dramatic, but the improvements are noticeable.

    After learning mode, finally I used the app for 2 days and really dont know what to say actually. This app does stuff I would do on my own, turning wifi off and other stuff it does seems useless. I' will think about deleting the app I guess :/ battery duration is the same in my opinion

    I turned the app off as it didn't IMO improve anything and didn't like it it turned off sync on apps that I actually use.

    Finished learning mode. Battery life is improved. Instead of 50% at the end of the day it has 75%. No problems with push email or texts or Vmail.

    I just uninstalled it. It appeared to restrict syncing and took control of WiFi (per my option). Guru may have added a couple hours on a two-day charge, certainly nothing special. I've amended what to sync now and have set Tasker up to take care of WiFi management and sync frequency. I consider it a learning experience, thanks Guru.

    The thing is, everything this app does, I can do myself. Turn off wifi when not at home, unsync unused apps and turn off them by my own. also this app requires to turn ON location services, that also drains battery, so, if they improve this app in future with more stuff, I will surely install it again

    I did too. I thought it was improving battery life, but I realized that's just 4.2.2. And Guru kept turning on WiFi in places I wanted to keep it off (I think just because I tried to connect to a network there once). That's annoying as heck. When I manually turn a setting off, I want it off.

    It's improved my battery life some, not a huge amount but definitely noticeable. I've tested it with Gmail push and texts, and haven't had a problem getting either. I'm going to give it a few more days to see how it goes before making a final decision.

    And for people complaining that it only does what you can do yourself, the point is it automates all that stuff so you don't have to think about doing it yourself. It's not like the app costs anything.

    yes but also app needs location services to be ON, that drains battery right?

    I suppose so, but then I keep location services on regardless.

    I have noticed that I stopped getting "time to leave" notifications from the calendar after the Battery Guru had its way, and Gtalk messages did not come through until I unlocked my phone. It also turned off Instant Upload. I'm having to slowly tweak its settings now to find the optimal balance. Looks like the app has some rough spots, but then it is a beta.

    This app made my battery life worse. My phone would rarely go into deep sleep mode

    Default Re: has anyone downloaded snapdragon battery guru?

    I installed the app Friday and now it's about 12 hours later on this battery charge and it's down to 63%. I paired the phone to my cars BT for the first time and made some calls with it. It was paired to my car for about 6 hours

    Usually, my battery drops to 96% about 15 minutes after unplugging and stays there for a few hours at least but this time, it dropped only to 99% after 90 minutes.

    Hi,

    while reading through the posts I decided to give the app a go. Said an done donloaded and installed it but I'm ahving trouble to distinguish between "Based on how you use it" and "Only when open it" For me, opening an app implies using it, or does "Based on how you use it" mean the learning option? Can someone please explain the difference

    Do I actually need to turn on the Sync in the Settings or does it work even when Sync is off?

    I would understand 'how you use it' as; if you normally are checking your email between say 10am and 2pm, Guru would keep auto sync active around that time.

    'Only when opened' would only sync your email when you open the app.

    I would leave sync on and let Guru take care of turning it on and off.

    It actually stops Gmail sync about a week after the learning period has ended. I love the app and notice that my battery life has been extended. It just so happens that today I was wondering where my emails were and realized that email sync had been turned off. Granted, it would save me battery life but I like those things to be left on.

    It doesn't seem good at learning, but the manual settings for refreshing helped. I turned off WiFi control as it kept turning WiFi on when I didn't want it on, rather than turning it off when I left range of my one saved network.

    Arrggghh!!!

    Installed and "learnt" on my nexus 4 about a week ago

    about a week later nothing works, uninstalled the app and still nothing works.

    Google+ photos syncs only when you force it
    Gmail no longer syncs
    Exchange has completely screwed (doesn't sync, even re-created the account, no ball).

    My phone is completely screwed and I'm facing a hard reset... Snapdragon should stick to hardware, don't installed, don't screw your phone!!!
