You’re traveling for work. You’re out for coffee with friends. You’re tucked away at a vineyard for a weekend getaway. What do these three experiences have in common?
They are all cases where you might find it challenging to find Wi-Fi. That means no checking-in on Facebook. No instagramming photos of a beautiful sunset. No sharing videos on Snapchat.
One company is hoping to change that.
WifiMapper is an app for both Andriod and iOS, brought to you by the team who built OpenSignal. WifiMapper shows the best free hotspots no matter where you are in the world. Powered by a crowd-sourced library database of nearly 500 million global hotspots, WifiMapper combines the best of FourSquare and Yelp, allowing for users to locate a free mobile hotspot and find out if the coffee is any good!
Users can also save money on their data plan and avoid having to pay costly roaming fees.
Some key features:
- Easy to use map of nearby Wi-Fi hotspots
- Foursquare and WifiMap integrated user comments
- Performance information on the Wi-Fi hotspot before you use it
- Edit functions to help improve the database—tell the community more about the Wi-Fi
- Password sharing
- Offline hotspot maps
