WiFi Comrade

If you find your battery dropping off, many times it is because you have too many connections (GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi). WiFi Comrade hopes to help by simply disabling WiFi when its not needed. The app remembers the unique ID from each cell tower and determines the device location. It automatically decides if the WiFi connection is needed, and turns WiFi on when in a "WiFi zone" and off when leaving - thats all there is to it. WiFi Comrade sells for $6.00 in the CrackBerry App Store (its on sale for $5 through the 31st) but we have 100 copies to give away. Just leave a single comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST.

I think this is a great idea. This may keep me from having to charge my 9550 more often.
I just hope that it has a cool looking icon when I download it.

Floont

Great idea, but dude, it's ugly as home-made sin.

eaoliver

There seems to be an obvious relationship between the font and the title.

I am in dire need of this app...I am constantly moving in and out of wifi coverage and don't always have the time to switch off my wifi reciever. This would save me time and precious battery! Please send me a copy :)

So I can set it and forget it! I always have to fumble about and go into the network connections setting to disable or enable. Its not a big deal, but this would be awesome!

Thanks in advance, CrackBerry!

This would definitely help save some battery. Now if only I didn't have a dozen other apps on my phone constantly using the battery I'd be all set.

cu19

one great benefit to help save power on my tour !!!

Kemotaha

I would use this often.

jagter1

Please can i have it :D

kf6kmx

Tried the demo... Works nice... Around my home the area covered by the cell towers is too broad for my liking.. It turns on the 'home' wifi miles away from my house.. And for some reason always adds two tower id's for my house, even though I only do it once...
Overall like the program, and would love to use it if I win one, but dont want to spend $ on it since it doesnt really work at my home site for the wifi... Other locations it seems to be tighter on, but the primary one at home is wide.

craign1317

i really need this app. the battery on my 8530 is terrible if i forget to turn off my wifi when i am not near my house

k00rg

This looks like i can use it, i don't think it is why my battery runs out in like a day but maybe it'll help a littlem count me for the contest ;)

Cynamonne

WIFI comrade please make me your comrade :-))

Nucker

Dont get me wrong, itd be nice to win which i never do, but how hard is it to just turn off your bluetooth when you not pairing with anything or turn off wifi when not at home or work?

Just food for though.

Hey can you make this program turn off my bkuettoth too when im not useing it?

lector

want to win a copy plieeeeese

bmc1217

I was thinking about an app like this just last night. I would love to win it. Does it turn it back on when wifi is available tho?

bmc1217

Nvm helps if I read full story lol

DaBear5

This would be a great prize!

herooftimeloz#CB

This would help me out a lot, I often forget to turn off the wifi and then have to deal with a dead battery soon after.

halfrican

I hate free stuff! (Trying a little reverse psychology, haha)

Desconocido

I purchased WiFi Hero which advertised itself to do the same, but doesn't work. Wifi Hero turns Wifi on in a given location, but it does nothing to turn it off when you leave that location. Winning this would make up for the money I wasted on WiFi Hero!

stuaw11

been looking for this kind of app for a long time

ruger10_22#CB

I would love to have a copy of this app.

nthnc

This would be nice. I've noticed my battery draining a bit quicker than I'd like it too.

dsmith3427

This is one of the most useful apps I've seen. Probably worth more than 5.00.

dj201000

this would be extremely helpful as I have lots of clients in a day that I go to, but wi-fi always on is draining throughout the day.
