Does not show hotspots when zoomed in

The app shows a set of clusters where hotspots are supposed to be, you zoom-in and click on it, the app zooms in even more and it does not shows any hotspots. USELESS!

A good way to find your location...but to connect?

This app just doesn't always work when connecting up to a new wifi. I travel and connect to free wifi several times a week. Boingo Wi-Finder will display your location on a map...which is great. But does not always hook up. I have to manually connect more times than with Boingo.

Great for rookie

Hey; been out of loop but getting with the chromebook; looks helpful-any other to "autolink" to "wifi hot spot on the run"?

I LOVE IT !! Got it a few years back and recommended it to several friends. When finally my fiancé and I stayed at a hotel that charged high dollar to use their wifi. So he tried Boingo and he is now bragging to his friends. Thanks Boingo !!

Confusing and rarely used

Many times when it starts the logo continuously rocks back and forth. It should let you know there are none in range. It also shows networks that are not free. I travel most weeks and have found free service 9 out 10 without Boingo. And typically on the 10 one I can't find service from Boingo.

Crashing left and right. Completely unusable

I just installed this app, but found that it is crashing within 5 seconds after opening. This is making the app completely unusable. Uninstalling it.

Does not work with Win8-tech support even said so

In order to use Boingo, I need to manually connect to the wifi, and then go through the internet browser, select '3rd party', and then look for the Boingo option. This Wi-Finder app. is utterly useless - it doesn't connect whatsoever, or even give the option to connect. I called technical support and they said this was a known problem with the Boingo app, and 'please do not use the Boingo Wi-Finder app on Win8 until this problem has been fixed'.... I would give it negative stars if I could.
