OpenPods for Android – Check the battery status of your AirPods



OpenPods is a free and open source app for monitoring the battery status of your Apple AirPods on Android OS devices, developed by Federico Dossena.

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it’s a less secure way to download.

OpenPods does not track your location, it needs location access to access BLE, and Android puts that permission under location.

This application is from a third-party developer, so an automatic update won’t be available.

You will need to manually update the app by installing the new version from the APK file; the previous app will be replaced automatically.

All the updates have the latest fixes and optimizations, but their constantly changing nature means that little testing has been done on them and unknown bugs may appear.
