At the last post we offered some suggestions for using HotSpot software. Boingo WiFi and Wi-Finder appear to be very popular Mobile Apps. Both iPad and Android have this App available for their mobile devices. Boingo received great reviews, both for ease of use and customer service.
Mobile applications, also called mobile apps, are software applications, usually designed to run on smartphones and tablet computers. They are available through application distribution platforms, which are typically operated by the owner of the mobile operating system, such as the Apple App Store, Android Market, and BlackBerry App World. Some apps are free, and others have a price.via Mobile apps – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Here are some of the details that caught our attention. We suggest you use the links provided at the end of this post to get a complete review and guidance for each App.
♦ When traveling to a new place check out the Wi-Fi access before you go. This may help you decide on a hotel site, or a particular hotel (see below).
♦ The Blue pins on the map show free hotspots; Red pins indicate Boingo hotspots.
To check where the hotspots are at the site you are traveling to, do the following on your mobile device:
1) Click the Boingo App Logo 2) Click Find Hotspots Near Me 3) Type the address, or city and state of the place you’re traveling to 4) When the Blue & Red pins show up, click the View button 5) click the List button 6) click Done, a list of locations will appear on your mobile device screen (see samples below). You can also click on a place to see more details (e.g., whether the hotspot is free). Note: Click the images below with your mouse to see a clearer picture.
