Icon Pack - Overlay Support

Image
The GSam Battery Monitor Icon Pack contains support for overlaying your default battery icon.  Take a look at the top right of the screenshot below.  You see the 12?  That's the overlay icon, replacing the normal drab battery icon that doesn't show you any details.


Why Overlay?
Some devices don't show the icon in the normal notification bar, so you have to drag down the notification to see the % of your battery.A lot of custom ROMs for your phone/tablet support a 'mod' that allows you to control the battery icon itself.  Great for those who have it - but this brings you similar function without rooting your device!The overlay shows up on your lock screen - so no more unlocking your phone just to see your battery %.  Some phones already show the battery % in the lock screen, but a lot don't.
