    I just now learn that the balance board connects separately (had I owned one I would know already ... but anyways ...)

    Thanks for another nice little app.
    It's probably for using rechargeable but I can never get a 100% reading off of mine. :(

    I'll be releasing an update very soon that should greatly improve the accuracy of the reports.

    When I first released this, I was annoyed by how popular it was. I posted it in a thread on temp, and it was the simplest app I had ever made, only like 50 lines of code. SE GUI is thousands of lines of code, and it has only a fraction of the downloads. IIRC, PowerCheck got around 200 downloads in the first day.

    Anyway, I've finally gotten around to creating an official thread.

    Edit: Oops, sorry for the double post. Can someone merge these?

    That tells you if it is closer to 0, 25, 50, or 100 percent. This gives you the actual percentage. Look at the screenshot.

    the home menu shows the life of the batteries by:100%/75%/50%/25%/o%
    this app shows: 68%/21%/92% ETC

    Plus in the System Menu (or anywhere the HOME menu comes up), the Balance Board takes the place of the fourth remote, so you can't see them all at once.

    Yeah, or any other homebrew loader. It's not a Wii game. ;)

    Edit: An update should be coming tomorrow.

    PowerCheck v1.6 is now available! Here are the changes:
    • Huge improvement on the report accuracy
    • Errors are now shown in red.
    • You can now turn off the Wii with the POWER button
    • Added version number to the app
    • Some code cleanup

    I've already started on v1.7, and I think you'll like it. :)

    That's bizarre, it used to work. I've made a new one, hopefully this will stick.

    I'll send an email.

    Edit: Actually, I can't find an email address. I guess it's up to the devs to do that.
