What to do if an employee complains about battery drain.
The app uses very little power. Unlike many other apps, Timesheet Mobile’s geo-fencing technology monitors in the background but does not continuously send and receive data so there is no continuous drain. A quick check of the phone's battery performance will show that the app typically uses less battery than your email, Facebook or other popular apps.
