batterysaver_2009-20-09_160740Are you one of the Palm Pre owners who powers off your phone each night to save battery life? Of course, that means you have to go through that long boot sequence in the morning. Maybe you dutifully go in each night at bed time and turn Airplane mode on, so your Pre won’t be beeping and buzzing all night. Then you just have to remember to turn it off in the morning. Now you don’t have to think about it anymore as the homebrew app of the day, Battery Saver, has an easier solution.

Battery Saver automatically turns Airplane Mode on at a configured time, and back off again the next day. Set it and forget it. The card doesn’t have to be open for Battery Saver to work. Once it’s run once it keeps running in the background until the Pre is rebooted.

  1. No, I am one of those Pre co-owners (it’s really my wife’s, but California is a community property state) who puts the Pre on the Touchstone every night. Why wouldn’t I?

  2. That app is definitely going straight on my Pre just as soon as I get my grubby paws on the handset (it’s due in the UK next month).

  3. I like the concept but for those using there mobile as their home phone its not a good option in my opinion. So take this a step further and let me shut off email checks for specific time periods…maybe even SMS checks if you could. Perhaps the folks who are building apps that reach out to check things periodically (like Tweed) should start integrating this sort of thinking into their apps?
