Wifič app review: easy Wi-Fi hotspot access

Reviews

Introduction

Whenever you’re traveling overseas in a foreign country it always helps to give you a little peace of mind if you know that you’ll be able to get access to the Internet when you need it, so with Wifič on your iPhone and iPad that’s exactly what you’ll get!

The best bluetooth apps for iPad

I’ve seen countless examples of Wi-Fi hotspot apps in the App Store over the past couple of years but I really like what the developer has done with this one because the content and overall presentation are about as up-to-date as you could hope to find.

GPS Integration

With this app installed on your iOS device you should have no problems finding your way to a Wi-Fi hotspot to enjoy Internet access across Europe, and with your device’s integrated GPS you can detect Wi-Fi hotspots close to your current location.

Wi-Fi hotspots you locate will be available in a handy map view so you can easily find your way to them, or in a list view complete with their distances from wherever you happen to be.

Good Old European Ingenuity

One thing that I think really sets Wifič apart from the competition in the Utilities category of the App Store is that you can earn Rewards for completing certain tasks such as correcting erroneous entries.

What this means is that once you’ve unlocked all of the Rewards badges you’ll be granted completely ad-free access to the app. I’ve never seen a developer do this before and I think it is a great display of ingenuity.
