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'm definitely trying to get teh free copy of WiFi Hero

Ktrombly0310

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!

wtm2w

Onyx battery life is already stellar, but there's always room for improvement!

Delegator

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).

ST1100A

Now this app looks to be very useful...

thedadams

This would be perfect for my work WiFi and my Blackberry Storm2

vldmr

would like to try this app out, why not

thehawkins

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.
