Great app for BlackBerry, WiFi Hero

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi BlackBerry fans! Another great app is out for the BlackBerry! What makes it so great? It saves your battery! If you’re like me you’re probably constantly using different apps and quickly running down your battery.

One of the nice things about the latest BlackBerries is that you can use the wifi to make calls on (UMA) and for data as well. However this causes battery rundown issues if used excessively.

Well a new app has come out called WiFi Hero. What does it do? It remembers the locations of the wifi access points you use and then turns on the wireless automatically for you when you need it and then turns it off when you don’t. This way it can save you battery power.

There is a great review over at Berry Review that you can read. The app doesn’t even cost that much at $4.99!
