The Malta Communications Authority (MCA), in collaboration with other entities manages a total of 185 free Wi-Fi Internet hotspots across Malta and Gozo which are available to the general public.
This application was written by Daniel Schembri and is officially authorised by the MCA and displays the nearest available hotspots to your current location as well as a map view of the entire list.
There are two main views -
* Nearby - if the user's location is available (via GPS), this view displays the nearest 10 hotspots to the current location including real-time updates of the distance and direction to each hotspot. If the location is not available, all hotspots are displayed in a list.
* Map View - this view displays all WiFi hotspots as markers on a Google map. The current location, if available, will be displayed as a blue dot. Further information may be obtained by tapping on the relative marker for the hotspot.
Updates are carried out automatically in the background and an internet connection is only required for first time use and for viewing the Map.
