Hotspot Finder WeFi Enhances Features for PC and Android

6 Comments

We’ve been all over WeFi for Android since it first appeared, and the useful service just got even better. WeFi is a way to find a Wi-Fi hotspot that meets your requirements. There are more than 56 million verified hotspots in the WeFi database, and new features make it a must-have app on your laptop or supported phone.

WeFi for PC and Android (s goog) devices now allows you to enter an address and find all the Wi-Fi hotspots nearby. The hotspots have verified information that includes the type of location (cafe, library, etc.), whether the hotspot is free, if a password is required and even if a web page is used to access the connection. Crowd-sourcing is used to ensure the database is not only growing, but is verified by the 4 million users of the service.

Maps are now available on to show hotspots onscreen, so finding one is now easier than ever. The maps coupled with the “Find Wi-Fi” feature make getting online easy using the GPS found in most handsets. The maps will show any verified hotspot around the current location when the feature is used.

The free WeFi service is available on both notebooks (Windows and Macs) and phones running Android, Windows Mobile (s msft) and Symbian. Sorry iPhone and iPad (s aapl) users, there’s no support for you.

Yes, that’s true, but someone beat me to it xD. it seems like a great application though and I’ve only used it for 10 minutes. :)

Thanks for pointing it out.

Hmm, this is the perfect application to find a public area with free wifi access. I’m gonna download it now and check out any hotspots near me. My campus has free wifi that I’m using now, I wonder if that’s already on there…

Well, off to download!
