C Spire Makes Connecting to Wi-Fi Easier with New App
C Spire Wireless today announced the availability of a new app called WiFi On, which will allow C Spire customers to connect to more than 14 million Wi-Fi hotspots around the world. The app was made by Devicescape and uses its partners to connect to the various Wi-Fi hotspot networks. With the app running in the background, WiFi On will automatically search for and connect to open, public Wi-Fi networks. The app is smart enough that it will turn the Wi-Fi radio off when there's little or no signal available. WiFi On works on any Android smartphone running Android 2.2 and up, and it will come preloaded on devices such as the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4.
