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.

(Bloatware) "Useless App" & "Battery Hog" and waste of "storage space". Anyone who rates this app higher than one star is not very bright at all. If you have a smart phone there is no need for this app. All this app does is drain your battery. There is no reason why U.S.Cellular should have put this app on anyone's phone without the ability to uninstall this app that has no use for anyone's phone. Not only does this app drain your battery fast it is also a waste of storage space. U.S.Cellular do everyone a favor and stop putting useless bloatware on good phones.

Can't Use WiFi Anywhere! Apparently it doesn't matter if the network you're trying to get on has a password or not. It doesn't matter if your fifty feet away from the router or right next to it. No matter what, I can not use WiFi.
