Hi all,
I use the "Moves" to track my movements on a daily basis. Unfortunately, activating location services kills my battery.
Is there any tweak that would automatically switch off location services when it connects to a recognised wifi network, like my home or work wifi?

Thanks.

You can use an activator switch. Joined wi-fi - disable location services

Brilliant! Thanks.
I believe Activator is still in Beta. Is it stable?Is there any advantage to waiting until the "public release" version is out?

Thanks again.

No sense in waiting, its very stable. I don't have many activator commands but I've never had a problem with it. GL.

There is a public release on the BigBoss repo. There is also a beta version on the developer's repo (http://rpetri.ch/repo). The public release is all you need to switch off location services on wifi. But the beta is very stable, if any of the additional features in the beta appeal to you.
