We’re so addicted to our phones that we simply can’t fathom the idea of not being able to use it because it’s out of battery juice. That’s why we’re constantly charging our devices, making sure they have enough battery to get us through the day.
But who said that having your battery die can’t be a fun experience, especially if you don’t have a charger or external battery on hand. That’s where the brilliant $1 Die With Me iPhone and Android app will come in handy.
Die With Me only works if your phone’s battery dips below 5%. That’s actually everything you need to know about it:
The chat app you can only use when you have less than 5% battery. Die together in a chatroom on your way to offline peace.
That means the app connects you with people in the same situation, who may be looking to kill time while their batteries run out. It also means that you can’t use the app unless the battery indicator shows 5% of charge or less, which makes this chat concept so unique. Each chat experience should be totally random and unique.
Reading the comments of some Android users on a Reddit thread Reddit thread made me realize you can use the app to test out the health of your battery.
Completely discharging your phone’s battery just for the sole purpose of trying out Die With Me seems silly. But you might consider doing it just to see if your phone’s battery can get all the way down to 0%. It’s not a scientific test to measure the health of your phone’s battery. But if you can’t get below 5%, then there might be something wrong with the battery.
Some Reddit users complained that their devices — other than iPhones — shut down unexpectedly even when the indicator shows there should be plenty of battery life left. Those devices likely need to have their batteries replaced with a new one.
