Need a hotspot? iPass Open Mobile for Windows Phone 8 allows business users to connect

If you find yourself in a 9-5 that requires you to don a business suit daily, you might be pretty excited that iPass Open Mobile is now available for Windows Phone. This is an app that helps enterprise customers connect to over 1.4 million hotspots at various locations. Details on the app after the break.

First off, your company is going to need to be a customer of iPass (https://www.ipass.com/). If this sounds like your situation, iPass is probably one of your favorite tools (besides tethering) to get connected. You’re getting access to the iPass Mobile Network by using the iPass Open Mobile app for Windows Phone.

This is a network that consists of over 62,000 free, open access hotspots. In addition to that, you’re getting 63,000 connections at hotels and convention center venues, coverage at over 93% of the world’s top 100 airports, premium inflight Wi-Fi on 1,900 planes, and all this powered by 150 Wi-Fi operators connected. This adds up to a network that spans 130 countries with 1,493,954 hotspots. Not too shabby.

This app allows to find the nearest hotspot and then connect using your iPass account. Design looks pretty solid from the screenshots and definitely worth checking out if this a service you’ve been looking forward to. Today they launched the above mentioned app for Windows Phone, but they also have an app for Windows 8 users to use.

  • Yeah I hate it, too. Apple has beaten it to death.
  • Not apple.  Just everyone trying to be like Apple.  It's their thing, let them have it.  I can't stand it when I see it on other things though.  I've seen some really bad examples that make me cringe.
  • Because Apple's 'in', right? Hipsters use it, so to appeal to everyone we should mimic the naming scheme even 10 years later. I'm with you; perfectly happy for Apple to use it now that they've taken it over, but it doesn't need to be on completely unrelated products.

  • Started with iPaq by Compaq in 2000, years before apple hopped on board and market the hell out of 'i' product. Then their success lead to third party manufacturers making accessories for 'i' products everywhere... Now it can be something stupid, totally not related to technology at all.
  • iPaq, followed by the 1Paq, which was then superseded by the short-lived 2Paq.
