Ever been in a hotel where the Internet disconnects you (or logs you out) if you’re inactive for a few minutes? If you’re frustrated by that, then LifeLine is here to save you further frustration (and hair loss, if you’re the type to pull out your hair). 🙂
LifeLine has just one job – it connects to an Internet site you provide (or by default, to Google) at a time interval specified by you so that your Internet connection always remains active. And voila! No more disconnects every couple of minutes! No more having to log in again. And again. And again.
LifeLine sits in the menu bar of your Mac and tells you when you’re connected to the Internet and when you aren’t. If you’re connected, the icon displays green. If the app is unable to connect to the Internet, then the icon displays red. This way, you’ll notice when your Internet connection is out and take the appropriate action.
And that’s about it. 🙂
One item of note. LifeLine doesn’t automatically connect to the Internet when you start it – we thought that it’s best that we leave the connecting and disconnecting under your control. But if you feel that an automatic connection option would help you, do let us know. We’re always ready to add more features to make it more useful for you!
