Find your hotspot with Boingo for Windows 8

Don't you need Wi-Fi to use it though? I guess if you have LTE built into your device. Makes more sense to me on the phone.

Right!! This should be released for WP so it would at least be useful.. Lets download it and suggest they make a WP app in the review section.

You are correct it is available for RT. My fault for just looking at there website where I did not see Windows RT listed. (Reminds self to check App store next time) ;)

It's great to find WiFi spots, but all the WiFi hotspots listed on their site in my area (Mendocino County, Northwestern California) are free, why would I need to pay them for access?  Most WiFi hotspots around NorCal are free, VERY few charge (it's usually the overpriced, upscale hotels).

Don't need this because my cable company gives me free WiFi using there speed is fast. Also boingo owner who created this company is a scientology dork.
