I am using an android phone and it eating my battery like no man’s business and am wondering if there is any app that can save my battery.

There are apps on the Store that claim to help you increase battery life. My experience says that's a big lie. It just boils down to your usage, settings and generally being aware of what your machine is running. There are a couple settings you can use, e.g. Wi-fi timer (only run wi-fi when you're using it), screen brightness (this can be a huge energy guzzler), media-server (especially on the Samsung Galaxy S3), background sync, GPS, etc. There are apps like Task that may show you what you're but they really don't save your battery.

just check you battery stats and see what app is chewing your battery and then disable or minimise usage of that app

I have found that when I disconnect my internet and lower the brightness of my screen, then my Android phone (a power thirsty Samsung Galaxy S3) can last the whole day from 6am to 9pm.

I use GO Power Manager. works like a charm. has one button Optimizer saves power. it also gives you a rating of how well apps you are using are consuming power so you know how to cut down.
