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.

It Sucks Worst app ever!! Sucks the life out of your battery, but sad thing is, if you don't use it the 4g doesn't work right. It's really slow. I guess it's time to look at another carrier.

Connection jump Won't hold a steady connection to my home wifi. It jumps to our guest acct, the neighbors & the business down the block. It wouldn't even hold a connection long enough for me to write this review (the 1st time). I really expected more from US Cellular.
