Wireless Internet technology is rapidly evolving, with the possibility to get online from nearly every Wi-Fi enabled location, as long as the proper login credentials are provided. Wireless routers are used in every business or leisure environment and there's a high chance you're connected to one right now. Identifying hotspots is possible while in the signal range, but applications like Boingo Wi-Finder make it possible to view nearly all hotspots around the world.
Support for multiple platforms
Since the application runs in a metro environment, you can only use it properly if deployed on a computer running Windows 8 or later. On the other hand, the application provides support for a large variety of mobile device so you can use it on the go.
Find Wi-Fi hotspots all around the world
Considering the above, it's needless to say that a metro environment is brought up once the application is launched, with your screen displaying an overview of the world. By default, you can simply navigate to any desired location to check whether or not any hotspots are available. You might notice colored points all over the map, which represent active hotspots.
Zooming is cleverly done by following your mouse pointer, making navigation easier. What's more, advancing closer to street level, clusters are displayed along with coverage area and number of hotspots. With a simple mouse click, all points are displayed. Each location is equipped with several details regarding the specific service.
Easily plan travel routes
This comes in handy because several filter options let you choose only hotspots from hotels, airports, schools, offices, other public services and a few more. In addition, if you're planning to go on a business or leisure trip, the application is capable of calculating and displaying the shortest route to travel to the specific location.
A few last words
On an ending note, Boingo Wi-Finder is a practical tool, mostly because of the abundance of hotspots available all around the world. Although some locations take slightly longer to display points of interest, the application is definitely worth a try because of support for various platforms and even the route planner option.
