This App Will Solve The Most Annoying Part Of Traveling


WifiMapper app

If you’re just like us here on Team JST, the most annoying part about traveling HAS to be not having Wi-Fi on a 24-hour basis. Not only is the quest to look for internet cafes challenging at times (try doing so in developing countries,) walking into a restaurant solely to ask for the Wi-Fi password comes off as desperate yet strangely normal.

We love anything that can get us to insta our latest photos from the road, thank goodness WifiMapper is here to relief our social media anxieties. With more than 2 million networks, and the use of unique algorithms to cross out ones that aren’t free, WifiMapper gives travelers a complete list of publicly available Wi-Fi hotspots across the globe.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Download the app.
  2. By identifying your location, you’ll see a map with green dots in your surrounding area.
  3. Tap the name of the connection, you’ll see if that particular free hotspot has certain restrictions: time limit, the type of connection, registration, if it’s secure…etc.

The app relies on your feedback. If you see a connection which isn’t free, you can provide that information and help other users encountering the same problem.

Instead of paying tons of bucks for roaming charges, go download WifiMapper via iOS or Android version.
