AT&T Passport℠ app is designed for AT&T customers with an AT&T Passport Silver, AT&T Passport Gold or other qualifying international travel package that includes Wi-Fi.
The App enables AT&T customers to access participating AT&T international Wi-Fi hotspots from their iPhone or iPad.*
The App includes:
• Ability to authenticate to participating international Wi-Fi hotspots
• Ability to see available hotspots within Wi-Fi signal range
• Search capability by City & Country with a Map view and a List view of hotspots
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

What's New in Version 5.1.19
Improved connection. Performance improvements and minor bug fixes.
A waste of space
The most useless app ever. You need access to the Internet in order for the app to find the AT&T hotspots. So you're either connected to wifi via wifi (in which case you do not need the app) or you are using data roaming which is expensive to try to find wifi. On the very few occasions the app did find an AT&T hotspot, such as Rio International Airport (GIG), I was NEVER, not once, able to have my iPhone connected to wifi via the app. In my experience the app was useless in China (Beijing, Hangzhou, Shuzhou or Shanghai), Brazil (Rio, Vitoria, Salvador, Morro de São Paulo or Chapada Diamentina), Israel (Tel Aviv or Jerusalem) or Jordan (Amman) . Try MandicMagic instead. IMHO, this AT&T app is useless. Don't waste your data or hard drive space downloading it or your battery power trying to use it.
The worst, just like AT&T
The more indicative feature of this is that it says you need to connect to wifi...in order to find their wifi hotspots. You have to find wifi to find their wifi. Overall, my travel experience with AT&T has been the worst. My husband has T-Mobile, which I thought was kinda junky, but he sure it doing fine. AT&T drops constantly. And this app is beyond useless.
An embarrassing waste of space
That app is useless. It found one Wifi hotspot on a 4-week trip to Europe. It doesn't even work properly. Launch it once and it keeps polling your GPS, and you get the app using your gps bar continuously, even when you chance settings in location services. Each time you launch it, you have to force quit it. Really crapware.
