Wifi Map is a free app to help users find free wifi anywhere in the world. It shows the locations where free wifi is offered on a map, together with the password for the hotspot.
It incorporates a speed test so the user can understand how fast the wifi hotspot connection will be. It can even work offline so the user can obtain wifi passwords without a network connection, otherwise you could be stuck knowing where the hotspot is but unable to get the password.
A free version is available for iOS and Android, as well as a premium version available for £4.99 which provides details of wifi hotspots in more remote areas across the globe.
The app works like a social network, where members can share passwords for hotspots they know and it has a really nice feature which will update the passwords for hotspots near your location so you can be confident you have the latest credentials. I am going to be using this a lot.
