It’s probably happened to all of us a dozen times. You’re walking out the door of your house and you realize that you forgot to charge your phone, which will now sit in your pocket, doomed to die on you at some point throughout the day.

It’s a problem that the simple Mac and Windows app ‘iBetterCharge’ tries to address. The program monitors the charge of any iOS device that is connected to your WiFi network and then sends you notifications on your computer to remind you when a battery needs charging.

Of course you could just remind yourself to charge your iPhone or iPad, but the app is so small and unobtrusive that it might not hurt to have it installed. You can download it for free here.
