Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Over 650,000 locations in 144 countries worldwide!
Quickly and easily find FREE or paid Wi-Fi when you travel with the JiWire Wi-Fi Finder for iPhone and iPod Touch. Download all of the locations offline, so you know how to stay connected when you are on the road.
Using the GPS function on your iPhone, the Wi-Fi finder will tell you exactly where the closest Wi-Fi hotspot is, and how to get there.
If you prefer certain providers such as Comcast, you'll be able to see which hotspots are served by those providers. You can also filter by location type (restaurant, cafe, hotel, etc..). When you find the location you want to use, you'll be given a phone number and directions on how to get there.
JiWire works closely with the top pay and free service providers in the world to give you the most accurate and up-to-date information available.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the developer. We appreciate all of the awesome feedback!

Nothing is perfect
Nothing is perfect. Some reviewers have complained that the iPod touch can not connect to GPS without Wi-Fi. This is true. So you should download the Offline version! While you still won't have GPS you will have the Location of the Wi-Fi hotspots. And since you don't have GPS anyway how do you normally find out where you are or how to get where you are going? This app is not magic! It tells you where you can find Wi-Fi hotspots. Plan ahead when you ARE at a Wi-Fi hotspot, so you can get directions to the next one.
Great app. Everyone needs to pitch in!!!
This is a great app and works as well as the writers have input. NO APP is going to have it all!! How can ANY company provide info for all the hotspots in the US or anywhere else ? They can't... Pure and simple. New ones pop up while others disappear all the time. If you find the app good, then help by adding hotspots. They won't get included immediately either unless the hotspot writers are diligent at making it happen. So every one has to work to make this app better.
I run a business and I work all the time to make it run better.
Good, But Needs Ratings and Photos…Help Me Decide!
I use this app when traveling or in an unfamiliar area. Duh, right? This should be obvious, but needs stating because the obvious is being missed with this app. In high density areas it finds enough hotspots to offer a CHOICE - which is great - But offers no data on how to make that choice.
All public WiFi is not created equal.
All WiFi venues are not created equal.
But unfortunately, there is no data offered here to help me discern Starbucks "A" from Starbucks "B". Is it spacious and plush with seating? Or is it a broom closet with a line out the door? The filter by venue option is a start, but a simple photo of the venue could tell me more (see Yelp). User ratings of WiFi strength could help me avoid trying to pull a basketball through a garden hose. The goal of this app should be to illuminate the unknown. Too often I have followed it into quicksand.
With a few extra features, this app might save me time and effort enough for me to PAY for it. The irony.
