Free WiFi Map app review: more than half a million Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide

Reviews

Introduction

What we have here is an absolute must-have app for those of you who are thinking of traveling to a foreign country. With more than half a million Wi-Fi hotspots available around the world, this is sure to become your go-to resource for getting connected on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad while out of town.

The best apps for finding free WiFi for iPhone

I’m very impressed by how quickly the maps load in this app, providing tabs that you can tap to access individual hotspots wherever you are.

Please note that this is the free version of the app, so information is only available on hotspots within a one-kilometer radius of your current location. You can still see hotspots displayed on the map, however, so this might be useful for checking that some hotspots at least exist in an area you plan to visit.

View Thousands of Hotspots Around the World

When you first start using Free WiFi Map · Hotspots and Wi-Fi Tips Finder in Offline. Worldwide, it will use your iPhone or iPad’s built-in GPS so that you can immediately begin accessing hotspots in your local area.

As soon as I did this, I could immediately see a couple of dozen hotspots within one or two hundred yards of my house. This really is useful because working online means that if my Internet connection goes down, my day typically turns into a frantic search to find a nearby cafe that can cater.

 

Access and Share Wi-Fi Passwords With Other Users

If you’re lucky and Free WiFi Map manages to find some hotspots nearby, you can tap on each entry to view more information on the establishment, including comments left by other users. I can already see five hotspots on my road with comments from users who have left the passwords for others to use.

This screen also includes buttons enabling you to share hotspots and passwords with your friends and family online via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email, and text message.

Again, this is a great way of sharing passwords with others in your area, but do try to make sure you buy a coffee from some of these places at least once in a while!
