Apple users with an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch can now easily get connected to Boingo (News - Alert) hotspots by downloading the latest Wi-Finder app recently unveiled by Boingo Wireless (News - Alert). The new version of Wi-Finder app supports Apple’s iOS 6 operating system.
For some time now, the Wi-Finder app has been helping users to connect to either one of Boingo’s 600,000+ secure commercial hotspots or Wi-Fi connections that have already been vetted by other Wi-Finder application users. Now with the new version, users automatically get a notification that Boingo can be used when the device connects to a hotspot and identifies Boingo networks in the Wi-Fi settings when several networks are available.
Boingo subscribers can also enable automatic login to take advantage of the hotspots, making Internet access fast, easy and seamless on an iOS 6 device.
Boingo’s smart client for iOS 6 devices is a great help to a user as it helps them to login to hotspots and even alert them that Boingo Wi-Fi is available when the device connects to an enabled network. Getting online is as easy as tapping the notification to launch the app and log in, says company officials.
“Simply put, our newest app for iOS improves the user experience dramatically,” said Dawn Callahan, senior vice president of marketing and sales for Boingo Wireless. “The new Wi-Finder app helps our customers find and connect to Boingo hotspots more quickly and easily than ever before by taking an active role in identifying Boingo networks and helping users get logged in as quickly as possible.”
In the United States, hotspots have become overly crowded with users connecting to the Internet everywhere including trains, buses, restaurants, libraries, and schools. Using Wi-Finder can help users feel safer about sending personal data over the air.
“As mobile device usage and data demand continue to increase, we know that mobile device users will be actively seeking Wi-Fi connections to avoid expensive data overage charges,” added Callahan.
Callahan said that they have removed even more barriers so their customers can take full advantage of the cost savings of Wi-Fi.
