Apart from the interface (which looks like it's still in the app development stage), this is a great application. My guess is that the negative reviews are from users who don't understand the interface. For the most part, you can ignore the interface altogether, and it will log you into many public a Wi-Fi hotspots that have a captive portal; it will take care of agreeing to the TOS, without you giving it a second thought. I'd give it five stars if the interface was smoother / more well-organized. Well worth the money.
I'm giving 5 stars because, for the most part, the app works great, and does a better job than most of it's competitors. However, I do have a couple of gripes. First, the user interface is not very pretty or user friendly. This was clearly a program created by a developer without the help of a designer. The developer really should hire a good designer to help improve the UI. Second, it doesn't always work right away, which can usually be quickly fixed by turning off the wifi and then turning it back on, which will then prompt the app to connect. For occasions like this, there really should be some sort of "refresh" or "try again" button. Other than those two things, great app. Would definitely recommend.
I have a Nexus 5x which, for some reason, will not connect to any Wi-Fi that requires a login for a captive portal. I have tried everything and this is a known issue with Nexus devices. While traveling recently I spent no less than several hours trying to get my device connected to the internet. I had forgotten that I paid for this app sometime ago and was searching the Play Store for a solution which led me to this app again. Once I install the app, without even having to configure anything, my device immediately connected to a Marriott Wi-Fi. That made the app worth its price in Spades alone. I highly recommend this app if you are having trouble with Wi-Fi hotspots requiring a login.
Lost a star as none of the passwords are saved in the cloud -- phone froze, swapped it for a new one, and NONE of the passwords were saved. Other than that, it provides an incredible valuable benefit that should be built-in into Android. No pesky privacy leaks (does not require spurious permissions)
I got this in the hope that I could listen to Spotify on my work wifi which times out every 60 minutes. It does indeed reconnect automatically, however I have to wake the screen for it to do so, otherwise it just keeps playing my music using data. I wouldn't mind if this was a free app, but it doesn't exactly do what it says regarding 'running in the background'. Is there a way to fix this?
For the longest time it auto connect to pretty much every public hotspot except for the one we have at work. I'm happy to say the latest update seemed to have solved the problem. Thanks!
