Immersive Maps. Enjoy a full-screen map experience that allows you to zoom in to view specific hotspots and zoom out to see a hotspot “heat map” that shows you cities with lots of Boingo locations.

Simplified Connection Experience. Just select “Use Boingo Wi-Fi Here!” in your Wi-Fi network list when you’re at a Boingo flagship hotspot. We’ve consolidated a few of our SSIDs into one Wi-Fi profile so that it’s easy to locate the right network.

Automatic Notifications When a Boingo Hotspot is Nearby. Whenever you’re in a Boingo hotspot or supported free hotspots, you’ll see a toast notification that announces: “Boingo Wi-Fi available here!” Just tap the notification to launch the app and connect.

Auto-Login.  Sit back and enjoy a seamless Wi-Fi connection experience with our auto-login feature! Just enable “Auto-Login” in the Settings charm to automatically log in at Boingo hotspots and supported free locations.

Search Hotspots by Keywords. Search for Boingo hotspots using the Windows 8 Search charm! Just plug in your search term and select Boingo Wi-Finder in the resulting app list.

Get In-App Driving Directions. Navigate to the nearest Boingo hotspot in a snap with our in-app driving directions. Just tap the arrow in the hotspot details and voilà – driving instructions at your fingertips.

Take the latest Boingo Wi-Finder release for a spin and let us know what you think. We love hearing your feedback!
