Website: WiFi Status
Smartphones obviously provide much greater functionality than traditional mobiles, but all the various chips packed inside place a heavy load on their batteries. As a result they have a long way to go before they can provide the type of battery life that we used to get from older-style handsets. Until then every ounce of extra battery life you can squeeze out of your Android handset is worth its weight in gold.
WiFi Status can help out a bit here. It runs in the background monitoring your Wi-Fi connection and pops up a little alert to let you know when your phone’s Wi-Fi chip is turned on, but not connected to any network, giving you the option to turn it off and save on battery power. It’s a handy little app if you often find that you’ve forgotten to turn off Wi-Fi when you’re out and about.
WiFi Status is a very simple, but effective app for helping you save battery power when you’re out of range of a Wi-Fi connection.
