App of the Week: WifiMapper

WifiMapper is the Wi-Fi access point search tool you wish was built into your phone. The app lets you search any location for available hotspots, and lists helpful tidbits about each Wi-Fi zone, like if it’s free or password protected.

The app comes from the folks at OpenSignal (who already provide a great tool for cellular area coverage) and boasts the world’s largest Wi-Fi database. Best of all, the information is maintained and updated by the apps community (i.e. you and me). So if a free access point suddenly goes dark, you or someone else using the app can make a change to the listing.

And hey, if that’s not enough, WifiMapper also includes Foursquare comments so you can find out more about the hotspot’s establishment. You may just end up with a decent meal in addition to free internet.

WifiMapper is free and currently available on the Apple App Store. An Android version is incoming – you can sign up for updates on the official page or join the beta now.
