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.

DBW487

I listen to a lot of radio on my Curve, and since it only has GPRS I need to use my Home WiFi to get the fast connection speed for streaming radio. This app saves me the bother of having to switch WiFi on and off in order to save my battery life, at $4,99 this would be worth it, even better if I won a free copy!

Better battery life makes a better Berry! Count me in!

RGH662

This is my blackberry. There are many like it but this one is mine. My blackberry is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my blackberry is useless. Without my blackberry I am useless. I must message with my blackberry true. I must be faster than my competitors, who is trying to outbid me. I must beat him to the customer before he beats me. I will. Before Crackberry addicts I swear this creed: my blackberry and myself are defenders of my trade, we are the masters of our competitors, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until are no iphones, but blackberries. Amen

hbzant22

My Bold consumes so much more power with WiFi enabled but the speed is definitely noticeable so I prefer to use it but often forget to turn it off. Long Island has so much WiFi available with Optimum Online so I would love to have this application.

With how fast the Storm 2 eats through the battery, this would be a nice addition to the phone.

rurouni

Please send it my way

w_bovine

I can't remember if I left a comment or not, so here it is.

dan360

it is amazing that little apps like this need to exist but i am glad they do. Since RIM isnt smart enough to fix the battery drain of wifi and bluetooth, i am glad Wifihero is.

paulwright1

Now theres a useful app that I could use.

nemo-maritime

Getting a Storm2 pretty soon, so it would be pretty nice to be able to get this on it to save battery for when I need it. Sweet idea for an app

Kezzsim

Kewl! this would be perfect, for my Bold-
the only place I use Wi-Fi is at my place and select Friends houses-
In fact, I accidentally left it on all day today... Someone needs a recharge!

DaBooty

This is just what I needed!

wnm

Another great app I'd like to win.

r1ckynutz
