Twinkler Software let us know about their latest application called WiFi Hero. This app automatically controls your WiFi Status and helps save your battery. The app works on all OS 4.5+ devices but obviously requires a WiFi enabled device. The cool part is that the app is only 12K so it also saves your memory. I am not sure how the app knows your location but it looks like it remembers your cell tower location… Still waiting for Twinkler to confirm.
The application has three working modes:
- Location Based. In this mode, WiFi Hero will automatically learn the location of the WiFi Hotspot you are currently connected to, and when WiFi is not connected (you are out of range of this Hotspot), WiFi Hero will automatically turn off WiFi – and when you come back to the same Hotspot location, it will automatically turn on WiFi.
- Screen Status. In this mode, WiFi Hero will automatically turn on WiFi when the screen is on and automatically turn off WiFi when the screen is off – making this very useful when you use your Blackberry to browse the web.
- Charging Status. In this mode, WiFi Hero will automatically turn on WiFi when the device is on charge, and automatically turn off WiFi when device is not charging and on battery power.
Check it out for $4.99 at this link in the store. The options for the app are under the main BlackBerry options menu.
