Have you ever been walking and searching to find a free WiFi network?
Always looking at your phone to see what networks are available?
The Android built in notification system for WiFi Hotspots giving you no vibration, sound or LED indication and always notifying you even if the open WiFi network is paid and draining the battery by running all the time?

No need to!

With our Open wifi finder and wifi scanner you can just press scan and enjoy your walk.
The app will automatically turn the WiFi on for you, scan and notify you when working and free WiFi Hotspots are found and immediately connect so you can just start surfing right away!

Simple an easy!

Features:
✔ Scan for open and free WiFi networks, possibility to filter the paid Hotspots and automatically connect to free networks (defined under settings).
✔ Auto connect once the network is found - you just have to unlock the phone and start surfing, no need to manually connect.
✔ Choose whether to be notified only if there is a free Hotspot available (no cost, no VPN login, web page logins required etc.). If there is a webpage or login required this option will not work, only direct internet (eg: places like Starbucks or airports, to name a few, require confirmation of terms via login page - disable the "internet only" checkbox to find such hotspots as well)!

✔ The app will scan and look for the best signal and the best free WiFi network in range and notify you only if there is a working Internet connection (hence the Internet permission the app asks for - the app connects through the found WiFi network only and doesn't use your data plan!)

✔ Set up the time interval between each scan (preserves the battery if you walk slowly)
✔ Set up a timeout period and whether to turn WiFi off after the scan timeouts (preserves the battery).
✔ Enhanced notification system for - normal notification, sound,vibration, LED (if available on the device).
✔ Once connected you will see the Signal strength and SSID name of the network in your notification bar with direct link to the wifi settings page on your android device (press on the notification message).
✔ 1 Click and easy to use Home Widget for fast scanning.

    the scanner works quite nicely so why one star? it's the terrible drm: I bought this app legitimately but it wants license checks all the time. due to my work I regularly wipe my android device and restore my apps. what happens is that when I start this app on the go, it wants to check the license. which is of course impossible because I'm not online. why would I want to use this app otherwise? th

    An essential wardr*v*ng tool. I am disappointed that with headphones in the notification alarm doesn't sound discreetly in my ears but sounds in both headphones AND the speakers.

    Doesn't work on my Google Nexus 7 tablet. This application doesn't run as an Android Service so when your screen dims Open WiFi Scanner stops scanning altogether. The fact the developer didn't implement as an Android Service indicates a bad experience. I do not recommend this application for anyone and my rating is zero. If I could get my money back I would want a full refund.

    Found it useless after using it for 20 days in the east coast; it seems to scan too slowly for any reasonable walking pace and I couldn't get Internet even once using this app. And a couple of times I was alerted of an open, functioning wifi hotspot by chance, looking at the screen at the right moment when Android's notification poped up, BEFORE this App alerted me. The whole concept doesn't work,
