Giveaway: Low Battery Saver

7 years ago in Articles, Essential Apps, Neat & Nifty by Brent | No Comments

Ever had your MacBook die on you? I know Apple has been so gracious to give us 20 minute warnings but I tend to respond with, “20 minutes? I’ve got time”. Low Battery Saver aims to help us out by giving us better notifications on the time our battery has left. It’s a pretty neat little app.

I’ve got a few copies of Low Battery Saver to give away. If you are interested, just Join My Mailing List and you’ll be set. (don’t worry, I don’t spam people. This list is just for giveaways)

The drawing will be held on Wednesday, Feb 8th, 2012

*Update: The drawing is over and the licenses have been given away. Join my mailing list for future giveaways
