When you have iphone and the power of web it has to offer you just can’t afford to miss any of the Wi-Fi access points and one such application which helps you in monitoring the wi-fi spots when you are travelling. The best part about WiFinder is that it is available as a free download but at the same time the functionality of WiFinder as compared to the other wi-fi network finder applications is very low.
Since there is nothing fancy about the application, it does only one function and that is to find the wi-fi spots and display them as open or closed. It was expect that since there is one function, the application will be performing the same in a very efficient manner but it’s not the case. Sometimes it does not show the connections that exit and sometimes if it shows, you are not able to access the network connectivity.
To get more details about the wi-fi spot Tap a network name and a screen opens with details: MAC address, channel, strength, noise, authentication and whether it’s hidden. To connect to a network you need to tap once more at the bottom of the screen and you are on your way to get connected to the network but don’t get astonished if you cannot connect as this is a major issue that many people are facing with this application.
Another feature of WiFinder is that you can also the network detection to automatic mode but this will consume more battery as its constantly searching for networks. Moreover you can also set alarm to notify you if you are in range of any network. The application is free but if you could spend $.99 on another application called WiFi Trak all your problems related to this application will be solved.
