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.

Except that you have to manually tell it when you are in a WiFi zone; it won't find a zone for you. Still simple enough to do, and a great way to save battery on my 8900.

This app HAS to be handy as I usually just leave my wifi off to save battery. I need this in my life. BTW, the name and font are just plain hideous...

RadioRaiders

If I win, can you just keep the app and give me the 5 bucks instead?

oh, btw I have a million free copies of my app to give away, www.cellumap.com

w_bovine

Gad...interesting name. Comrade, huh? There are some of us old enough to remember what that word used to refer to. Ever gone by a Macy's lately? There's that big red star on the building. Spooky. But hey I'll take a free copy so please send one my way!

Solace07

this would be a great app to have!

rderrick

What a great idea to save battery life. I'm one of those that tends to run the battery down a bit before recharging it (I just forget to charge it) This will save me a lot of hassle.

MStrawder

I've been looking for an app like this. Due to the signal from T-Mo at my house, I have to keep it on Wi-Fi for UMA, but I have to turn it off everytime I leave to keep from draining the battery. This would be absolutely awesome.

mrj8

Need this app....so bad.

ridiculousron

But this would be lovely for myself. Pick me please.
