Wi-Fi Now by U.S.Cellular


Welcome to the Wi-Fi Now application from U.S. Cellular® ! This is a free service that gives you access to the world’s largest network of qualified Wi-Fi hotspots. Wi-Fi Now automatically connects your device to select public and amenity Wi-Fi hotspots and helps you save on mobile data usage. Additionally, Wi-Fi Now tests the hotspots for functionality and will only connect to quality hotspots. Once set-up, Wi-Fi Now operates in the background – no user action is required. Wi-Fi Now makes connecting to Wi-Fi networks convenient and easy.
Wi-Fi Now adds to the native Android connection manager’s capability by identifying which hotspots to connect to and, more importantly, how to connect to them. For example, many public hotspots require a user to launch their device browser and tap on an “accept” button (or other manual steps) on a web page before they get a working Wi-Fi connection. Wi-Fi Now takes care of these steps automatically for millions of qualified public and amenity Wi-Fi hotspots.
Wi-Fi Now is designed to have negligible impact on battery life when compared to an equivalent device that has Wi-Fi enabled. If you notice a change, it may be because your data consumption is increasing and/or because the screen is enabled more often. Using Wi-Fi Now ensures the maximum benefit can be obtained from having Wi-Fi enabled and is strongly recommended.

Mobile Network Not Available? I clearly have a strong network. I clearly see that this app is broken all to frig. Fix this junky application. It worked fine before your borked update. I honestly don't know why customers stay with US Cellular at all. You get better phone service as well as customer service with frigging Straight Talk. That's pretty sad.

This seemed like an excellent idea but, after giving it several months to make a difference in my network life, it seems to be absolutely no better than simply using the built-in WiFi manager. 1) I live and work in an area with an abundance of free WiFi -- yet it never initially connects "on its own" without my input and when reconnecting to an open hotspot it still requires me to interact with the site. 2) The app description claims "national coverage" -- yet when I simply go 2-3 hours away from my home area, it never tells me anything other than "WiFi Now not connected" while simultaneously saying "Open WiFi available" ... obviously the database and model aren't quite there yet. I've reverted to simply using the WiFi manager that came with my phone; it provides equivalent capability without running another background app to consume resources.
