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.

I sure would love to have an app like this as I constantly make calls on WIFI at home, so I leave the WIFI on. As soon as I leave home, it would be great for an app to turn the WIFI off!!

I appreciate the opportunity to win a copy!!

I'm a Sprint dealer and would like to try this on my BB. I would also demo it to my customers and help sell the product after the current demo period ends as well. What better way to sell this App then to demo it to my customer base.

i have been looking for a app like this since the Android phones have this ability. Now my friends and stop bragging and i can say i can do that too.

Is Soo Cool! Would come in handy very much as a few of the buildings I have classes in on campus and some do not. It's a pain sometimes to have to manually manage turning wi-fi off and on worrying about battery life and such. This would suite me well. Thanks for the chance to win so many things! This is just another great app!

My reason for wanting Wi-Fi is that the building in which I work is pretty much impervious to Cell signals. So, a mode that would be great for me is one that would turn on Wi-Fi when my Radio doesn't have a connection (either radio is off, or no signal).

Its great for those of us who use UMA and have to consistently turn wifi on/off when leaving and returning back home to save battery.

O EM GEE. Who doesn't want to save on juice hours?? This app sounds AWESOME! Consider me entered!! Happy Thanksgiving and good luck everybody!!!

Hey, that is an awesome app. I'm tired of switching Wifi on and off. Please hook me up with a copy of it :)

I'll probably just pick it up. In my office, I don't get cellular signal so I ride WiFi for UMA all day long.

Although if any app should be purchased by RIM for inclusion in future builds, it should be this one.

That sounds good! Only use WiFi at home, but even with QuickLaunch, it is still a bother to switch it on/off...
Also, with leaked OS5.0 on my Bold9000, I experience shorter battery life than before; maybe this will help compensate for that...

Gimme!

I'm not afraid to admit it. I'm too lazy to go through the options to turn it on and off most of the time.This would make using Wi-Fi far easier and I would be more likely to use it.

what a nice app!!! specially as you said fur users like us who don´t have an unlimited plan!!! I would love to have one!

I would love to get a copy of this as it seems like a great idea! Anything to help with power management gets a thumbs up from me!

Well, looks like I am a bit slower than the average Crackberry user, but if it isnt too late, can I through my name in the ring for a free copy?

I live in an area with sparse coverage and most of my connecting is viz WiFi at home and work but I am constantly turning it off when I am not in a WiFi zone. This app looks like it would make life much easier for me.

I'm getting a new BB 9700 which is my first BB that has WiFi capabilities. I'd like to get a free copy of WiFi Hero so that the battery doesn't get drained when I'm not at a location where I have used WiFi before.

Thanks !

This is the app. I need. I always forgot to turn off the wifi connection everytime i leave the hotspot area and drained my battery. this could really help me!

this year sitting at the dinner table sitting around the bird, i would like to be thankful for....my blackberry and hopefully you guys picking me :) hope you mods have a happy thanksgiving!

Hi guys,

It would be great to have this app in my BB. I travel a lot into a large metropolitan area and my batterie is always running low because I forgot to turn off the Wi-Fi.

Thanks

I'm an avid fan of your site and has been recommending you to all of my friends who are Blackberry users. Kudos to a job well done!!!

This is exactly what I need given that the 9550 battery life is horrific! I constantly have to turn on/off the wifi as well as bluetooth to save battery! This was made for me!
