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.

Help save my battery!

gigantor

I hate having to manually turn off the wifi, and most times I forget until my LED starts flashing yellow.... This would indeed be a nice app.

intprd04

So how do you guys pick the winner anyhow?? Just point your finger at the screen, base on the comment or do you have some sort of program?

rayzryd266

I could really use this app - maybe my battery will last the last part of the day with it

GoldChildTX

I'd like to get a copy.

xeju

This is a nice solution. I currently use QuickLaunch to toggle my WiFi radio. But that still means I have to remember when and where to toggle it. Using the cell tower is really smart.

Oh yeah, sign me up, please!

mystery_of_me

Cool app....would come in handy!

Mike_Luchia

douglas_c17

Now that I just got my first BB with WiFi

Flying_Hellfish

I would love this for my 9550

jjcool

I really like the idea of this. I don't need wifi when I'm in my car, so that'd be a good time to shut it off. However, I'm fairly pleased with the battery life on my Storm2 and imagine it has some pretty good battery saving technology built in to turn down power to wifi when not in use. I'm pretty sure there's a power save mode that I've read about before.

indriven1441

Finally a useful wifi app!

Chief203

Sounds like a good App.

Its not so much the battery issue as it is the data issue. I am always forgetting to turn my WiFi on and therefore incurring data charges. This is the app that will solve that. Ahh crap! WiFi off again. Lol

Panther_88

Not sure what the big deal with this app. Having Wifi enabled doesn't make a difference with your battery. I've done a few tests myself, another myth that people buy into. Save your time and money for something you can really use.

PossumPete

I certainly wouldn't kick that out of bed!

kennyk11

This software should be absolutely amazing.. my wifi is ALWAYS on and i'm always having to find some way to charge my phone throughout the day..

miloszz

Looks like really useful app!

snakedoctor231

dunno if it was my phone or what.but when i had this it never worked.has anyone ever used it?and how did it work for you?

sheldonbk

Checked this app out a little while ago. Very nice free trial and it proved to work well. It doesn't automatically turn on and off based on wifi availability. It does so when within range of specified cell towers, which you define as wifi ranges when you're in an area that you want wifi to work. Creative and an easy way to not have to worry about when to turn on and off wifi.

Cap_172R

Pick me.. here's my entry for a copy of this app! great giveaway!

cosmica

would love a copy please.

BerryUK

This is a great utility, as I know.
Hope can win the contest.

Thanks.

mcelroyc

I have noticed that my blackberry battery has been draining much faster than usual and i noticed the problem after setting up WiFi at home. Now that I travel back and forth between work and home it seems to constantly be searching.....like E.T. "Phone Home..." :)

collecting_junkie

If it works as well as they say it does...it could save me a lot of agravation looking for the next power source!

donlsutton

I am always working between the home and the office. This would be a great tool to have, turn on for home wifi, turn off, turn on office wifi, and then turn off while commuting. I have been waiting for something like this. Can always use a tool for wifi and to gain more battery.

Thanks

DLS

debangor
