After installing the new iOS 8, I am able to look at which programs eat up my battery life. Its turns out that Overcast eats up the majority. Overnight, outside of Internet range, I saw that 75% of battery usage went to the Overcast app.
I like Overcast, but I also like to maintain good battery life as well. I use the camera to record video and need that battery life. The best option right now for dealing with Overcast is to delete it. I don’t see any options to stop the background activity in the app.
This makes for a tough choice.
