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!

Great idea – needs a little help
This is a nice app but it has some shortcomings I would like to see addressed. There is no way to submit corrections or updates on these sites. You can only report one that's closed or add a new one. A number of our Wi-Fi spots locally show as being paid spots, and many if not most are free and of course this has changed over time I would like to see the ability to send updates on locations added in. also when submitting a new location, there is no option to indicate if it is a paid or free location. Adding these capabilities will make this app truly awesome.
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.
This is a very good Wi-Fi locator application. You can find Wi-Fi spots by closest location, worldwide location, by whether it's free or paid, by type of service it is located in and even by the provider. All these filtering options are given to better match what works for you. Users can even download wi fi spots when offline so you can have a reference of locations. Users can also save locations and even add ones they know about and are not listed in the app. Navigation is simple with the ability to tap on a Wi-Fi category from the main menu. This is a must have for wi-fi spot seekers.
