BT offer free WiFi for Android and iPhone Users
BT, who are normally really irritating, have done something rather cool for its customers.
They've gone and launched a mobile app for their broadband customers that automatically connects their iPhone and Android mobiles to free, unlimited Wi-Fi. Isn't that swell? Feel free to disagree and speculate about how it enables them to spy on you and your whereabouts.
The BT FON app will notify you of the nearest Wi-Fi hot spots. You enter your BT internet email username and password and you'll automatically stay logged-in and you can browse the web whenever you find yourself in a BT Wi-Fi area. And there's shit-loads of them knocking, last count says there's around 1.5 million BT FON and BT Openzone hot spots worldwide.
The main reason that this is great is because it will stop you from getting extra costs on your phone bill. This app has a map that shows you exactly where the closest hot spots are, which will save you money on your bundles.
Of course, there are already similar apps on the market to this, but these have a tendency to direct you to password protected spots and frequently, you find that access isn't always free when you do find a connection.
iPhone users can download the application from the app store and Android users can download the application from the Android Market. Search for BT Fon.
