Optimum WiFi Hotspot Finder
By CSC Holdings, LLC.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Optimum WiFi Finder App enables Optimum Online customers to locate Optimum WiFi hotspots, whether or not their iPhone or iPod touch device is connected to the web. The App enables users to carry out quick, advanced, and "near me" searches for hotspots. Results are presented as map view (when connected), list view (when not connected) and detailed view of single site locations. Users will be able to get directions to the closest Optimum WiFi hotspot from their current location in map view. Subscribers can save a list of favorite locations, reference a history of locations, and access help.
What's New in Version 2.1.2
• Full iPhone 5 & iOS 6 Support
• Re-designed User Interface
o New Side Menu Implementation
o New Smart Search Bar
• Faster search results
• Directions In Native Maps App
• Auto-Refresh Results When Panning Map
• New In App Settings Screen
Map mode is OK, but list mode and search engine are worthless because the database seems to only contain details (such as site name or type) for "indoor" sites maintained by private businesses for the exclusive use of their paying customers, but not for any of the "outdoor" sites that any member of the general pubic can use (such as the local public library, MacDonalds and Starbucks), so that none of the public sites show up on the lists, and searching for them by name returns a blank.
Like update =)
I love the new redesigned app and is more user friendly than the previous Version. The map view is now bigger then it was ( old map had the listing at the bottom of the map which kind of obstructing the view)
Not so good
There are three public wifi hotspots within a 10 mile radius of my home, this app shows none of them. I tried downloading the data update and still nothing. A competing app shows all three of the hotspots even without a data update.
It's a shame, because this app has a great GUI and isn't full of spam.
