Boingo Wi-Finder App Reviews

  • Worst app on the planet! Uninstall Wi-Finder!!

    By NotATechGeek
    What a crap of an app. Worst ever. It never does anything useful ... you can find WiFi networks just fine under “Settings —> WiFi “. But it actually PREVENTS you from getting on WiFi networks! That’s right! I now had been at several hotels, couldn’t figure out, why I could not log on. The check mark next to the WiFi symbol was there, but my IPhone won’t connect to the WiFi network. I spent HOURS trying to find a solution, resetting all passwords ( painful! ), etc ... nothing worked. I tried all the tricks I could find. Until ... I noticed that it said “look for Boingo WiFi” under that check mark. I open that app, now it connects me ... but I have no idea whether it is using its own plan to pay for it, or the plan I already paid for at the hotel. I went ahead and tried to delete it ... it is not under “Boingo WiFi Finder” but under “Wi-Finder”. Deleted it now, and now, everything works like a charm. But those lost hours of my life ... I never get them back. What a stupid, crappy app.
  • Breaks Other Free WiFi as other reviews. Developer’s purported fix is false.

    It’s quite telling that this app apparently has received all 1-star reviews for more than a year. (Yet, oddly, still shows an overall high rating). I can attest that this app breaks at least 2 free WiFi spots with captive login verifications, as reviewer MrBen123 stated. One of them is certain Hilton HHonors WiFi, so fairly wide spread. It is a serious concern for frequent international travelers, as the breaks cause by the app are not easily identified and one is left to diagnose it in environments with no internet connections. The developer’s response (to MrBen123’s review) of a fix is irrelevant/inaccurate/incomprehensible at best, since, in their current version, pretty much none of the mentioned options were present. Avoid install/download!
  • CAUTION!!!!

    This App is NOT updated for latest OS 12 software. It will “latch on” to your Apple Wi-Fi app and “lock out” Wi-Fi all together! You will next spend hours if not days sorting it all out. Easiest solution: DELETE. Customer support (on this issue): NONE —unless you call repetitive responses saying, “Sorry, this is not the experience we want for our customers” etc. SORRY BOINGO — you’re R&D is lagging and you know it!
  • Drains battery

    This app was draining 40+% of my iPad battery based on iOS stats page. Removed the app and battery life improved a lot.
  • Piece of crap on iPhone

    By ridiculuosapp
    This doesn’t work on iPhone. It makes your WiFi connection crash and doesn’t help you connect at all! Whoever pays for its service on the iPhone is ripped off.
  • Interferes with WiFi connections

    By pendolino
    As other reviewers have mentioned, this app somehow prevents you from getting a connection on various WiFi networks at home, etc. Once I deleted the app everything went back to normal. This is unacceptable.
  • Doesn’t seem to work

    By DIDUEAT12
    When I click find boings wifi it takes me to system settings. Can figure out why...also, if I’m connected to WiFi it doesn’t search for boings WiFi spots...doesn’t seem to work.
  • Never works

    I had this app for a few years already and it used to connect fine but lately (about a year so far) it never connects. The app finds WiFi spot that allows connection but using this app it does not connect. I hope future update will fix this issue.
  • seems broken

    Whenever I click to look for a network it just takes me to the Settings screen. I already have it set to Allow everything for the app, but still keeps sending me there.
  • Absolutely the worst

    By cynicalmusic
    In an airport with several hotspots, didn’t log into one of them. Also seems shady that you can’t cancel the strong armed subscription within the ap. I could have downloaded a PDF faster with two tin cans and a piece of string. Just terrible
