If your phone is JailBroken, Cydia has an app called my battery that will tell you

I tried searching my apps for that and couldn't find it. Is there another way?

Is your phone jailbroken? Jailbraking isn't an app from the store. It's a program that you gotta download on a pc/mac.

what it does is it gives you Access to apps that are not on the app store....you could fiend allot of videos on YouTube on how to do it ...It's a personal choises if you want to do it or not some people say that it slows your phone down when it's jailbroken and others say they have no problems..the good thing is you could allways restore it back to factory and Apple will never know so you don't need to worry about your warranty

Actually, the correct thing to tell the OP is that it doesn't matter. iPhone batteries work better if you keep topping them off, and it's actally a bad thing to run them down to 20% or lower on a regular basis.

Ummm, there is a battery meter in the top, right of the screen. Just like any other phone.
