Useless & Inaccurate
I read a review in the NY Times and decided to test this app in my neighborhood before venturing abroad (which I do often). Big disappointment! All the places listed were either non-existent of had relocated. The one dependable place for wifi in any town - McDonalds - was not listed. Neither did it list the public library. Only one of our many hotels was listed. There is a feature to add a location but no feedback feature for defunct locations. I live in a small tourist town in N Wisconsin where many folks come for a week and finding wifi is important. I will NOT be packing this app on my smart phone when I travel.
Doesn't give speed
It doesn't tell me the speed of the hotspot so it's useless to me I was trying to load up my photo library because I can only get DSL no matter how much I pay at my house or satellite at $100 per 10 GB thank you FCC for keeping us at the same speed we had 15 years ago and those wonderful anti-competitive rules down the street AT&T up the street Verizon no competition thank you again FCC for nothing!!! They gave all the best spectrum to AT&T and Verizon who could easily provide me broadband without any wires in one day at a reasonable price if they were only forced to i'd say a dollar a gigabyte would be about right for a home user who has no option to get broadband
Does what it claims, so far
All the hotspots it has claimed are there have been. I do sometimes find my iPhone connected when the hotspots it has mapped are just too far away (200 yds) to be usable. Too bad it can't give an azimuth and point me at the place I'm connected to.
The other enhancement I'd like to see is the ability for me as a user to report "free wifi here" and pick the location from my GPS. Or at least let me fill in an address.
