    Lightbulb New App! Radio Saver | Extend your battery life by intelligently managing your radio!

    We have just put out what is far and away our best and most useful app to date: Radio Saver!

    Check it out now for only $2.99--way cheaper than an extra battery! Radio Saver | Extend Your Battery Life - Personal Productivity Blackberry Software

    Greatly extend your battery life with Radio Saver! Do you live, work, or play in an area with bad service? Ever see how quickly having bad service can kill your battery? Let Radio Saver intelligently manage your radio for you saving battery in the process.

    The radio takes up the most battery by far on all Blackberries, and turning it off will drastically increase battery life. Radio Saver works by monitoring your signal level, and turning off the radio when the signal gets too low. It then intelligently checks periodically if signal has returned and leaves the radio on when it does, meaning you don't miss your calls or emails.

    Radio Saver is fully customizable to your needs, and includes two presents for common situations.

    Unlike other similar products, Radio Saver is the only app to intelligently monitor your service and automatically handle turning your radio off and on for you--no need for preset timers which cause you to miss calls and emails even when you are in areas of full service!

    NOTE: If you always have full service, Radio Saver will not help your battery life, as it will never be able to turn your radio off to save power. The longer the radio is off, the greater the power savings, so those in poor coverage areas will experience the greatest gain in battery life.

    Intelligently monitors signal and turns radio off in areas of poor coverage to save battery
    Fully customizable--every setting can be user configured to perfectly match your needs
    Two preset settings for common situations
    Works on OS 4.3 and up!
    Incredibly small memory footprint!

    I know it's early, just wondering if anyone tried it yet? I am curious to see what settings people set for signal strength and if it really works.

    been using it for the last week in my home with VERY spotty service and of course the airave is on the opposite side of the house so my parents can use it... but in my room where i spend the majority of my time i have very spotty service. the app has done wonders to my battery. at first i was very skeptical so i ran the phone without it for 2 days monitoring the battery usage with metterberry. then i threw the app on there and started monitoring again. sure enough over the next 2 or 3 days i was seeing an average of 10-15% increase a day (based on usage its very hard to keep that 100% consistent. )

    i am using a custom setting.
    threshold is 115
    for at least 30 sec
    leave off for 2 min
    check again after 30 sec

    i absolutely love the app when i spend time in my room. the app works just as advertised and please be advised this app is ONLY for people with SPOTTY or NO Coverage the app will NOT improve people with great signal all the time.

    if you have any questions id be happy to answer them

    Thanks for the post wowthatisrandom.

    I fortunately have great reception however, your evaluation is certainly worth taking the time to read.

    I can see this app being a great tool for those of us who travel for business and always are in areas where reception is weak or driving in and out of hot spots. Thanks for your input on this app.

    Does this app have the built in "Call Back" feature that they just released in a seperate app today. In the description above when you read about battery saver it says that there is auto call back, just need to confirm this or not with someone who has this app already
    Thanks

    Thanks for the review, wowthatisrandom....I probably should monitor my signal strength first and see how low it goes.
