WifiMapper, the iOS app that helps you find free Wi-Fi hotspots around the world, has launched in the Google Play Store. And it includes some useful Android-only features.
WifiMapper shows you the location of Wi-Fi hotspots, lets you know if there’s a time limit and if you need to register to use it, gives details on connection speeds, and even lists whether the connection is a secured network or not. Starting today, Android users can jump in and find free Wi-Fi and help curate the information regarding those locations. Additionally, Android users can connect to hotspots directly from within the app and view a history of the hotspots you’ve connected to. Android users can also view stats regarding how much data you’ve used and total connected time while on certain networks.
To edit, classify and comment on hotspots, you have to sign in via a Facebook account (something a lot of people don’t care for), but CEO Brendan Gill told TechCrunch that an email sign-in option should be available soon. You can download WifiMapper for free in the Google Play Store at the link below.
