    ok, I'm not 100% sure if I heard this from somewhere or if I thought of it myself lol, but I have a pretty good idea brewing in my head.

    From what I've heard, searching for wifi can drain your battery pretty fast when searching for a connection all day long. Yea, there is a way to change the interval in the settings, but some of us only use wifi in one or two places so even at a 1 1/2 minute interval, it's still useless.

    Would there be a way to make it turn on wifi when are in a specified location? I'm thinking maybe integrate the gps into it so it can let the phone know that we are close to the house and have it turn on the wifi automatically. I'm definetley not skilled enough to make it, but I know some people here have some mad skill.
