I mentioned this on +Mike Elgan ‘s post about Grokr, but the new iOS app ate up 24% of my battery life in an hour because of it’s constant use of location services. Has anyone else tried Grokr and if so, are you experiencing the same thing? My phone was idle during this battery drain. After deleting the app, the phone ate up another 3% in battery in the following two hours, so it’s safe to say it was most likely Grokr.
There has to be a better way. I hope Grokr can get it straightened out. For now, though, I’ll pass.
