Wifi Hero

WiFi is a power saving application for your WiFi capable BlackBerry smartphone. It offers 3 different modes to control the on/off status of your WifFi, hence saving your battery.

  • Location Based: WiFi Hero will learn the location of the hotspots you connect to. When you are out of range of your hotspots WiFi will be turned off, when you are back in range it will be turned back on.
  • Screen Status: In this mode WiFi will be automatically turned on when screen is on, and turned back off when screen is off.
  • Charging Status: This mode allows you to have WiFi on only when the phone is charging, once disconnected it will turn off until you charge again.

WiFi Hero is a very small application and a great way to save power for those who use WiFi on their BlackBerry. It is available for $4.99 from the CrackBerry App Store and is compatible with OS 4.5+

Contest: We have 30 free copies of WiFi Hero to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment - multiple entries won't count.

What would we do without the wonderful people who think of these amazing things. :)

kwues

I'd like one please :)

tratan

this sounds great! i would love to try it out...for free!

I downloaded this app yesterday and had major issues with it. It kept turning my Wi-Fi on and off by itself. Others have experienced the same issue. I am running OS 5.0 on an 8900. It also locked up my 8900 at one point. When it turned off my Wi-Fi I couldn't send or receive any push email. When I uninstalled it my services went back to normal.

You might try the free trial first before moving forward. For me... it is a no go.

Desconocido

I was wondering how well this app worked.

I also wonder how the location base service is working. The app has to be running and using either cell site location or GPS. That might consume more battery than just leaving the wifi on.

Anybody want to weigh in, join the forum discussion at:

nnducuy

I love it too! Please send me a copy! Thanks so much!

friedriceballer

This would be great for when I leave the house or school, and there isn't any WiFi. Save me the hassle of having to turn it off every time I leave locations with WiFi that I frequently visit.

calvinc

I have a Curve 8900. It being without 3G means that I am on Wi-Fi whenever it's available. This would definitely enhance my BlackBerry experience. Please pick me!! I love you CrackBerry!!

amf14

Very useful app! Hope to get this one. Thanks!!!

JohnHa

Would love to have a copy for my Onyx 9700, thank you!

mgm1979

Don't use WiFi as much as I thought I would, but I think it's partly due to a sub-conscious fear of draining the battery - this could be the answer that I didn't know I was looking for!

DJ G.MAC

All of us new Storm 2 owners need this! LOL!

spawn1130

I need this free app, the wifi keeps sucking the battery dry on my Storm 2

rorosz

This is the perfect app for me! Please count me in!

AuTigerMan

This seems like a very useful application. I wonder how much power I'm using my leaving the WiFi on when I'm out of range?

Mark_Venture

Sounds like a cool app. It would be neat to have my WIFI enabled when I come home, and turn off when I leave.

kamakazie2

This would be great for me! I only use Wifi in my house as i have ZERO signal there but dont need it once i leave!
