MCA Malta Free WiFi
By Daniel Schembri
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The Malta Communications Authority (MCA), in collaboration with other entities manages a number of free Wi-Fi Internet hotspots across Malta and Gozo which are available to the general public.
There are two main views in the application -
* Nearby - if the user's location is available (via GPS), this view displays the nearest hotspots to the current location including real-time updates of the distance and direction to each hotspot. If the location is not available, all hotspots are displayed in a list.
* Map View - this view displays all WiFi hotspots as markers on a Google map. The current location, if available, will be displayed as a blue dot. Further information may be obtained by tapping on the relative marker for the hotspot.
Updates are carried out automatically in the background and an internet connection is only required for first time use and for using the app in Map View.
This application is officially authorised by the Malta Communications Authority (MCA).
