Cool for finding hotspot locations but what else? EVERY time I try to log in to an xfinity hotspot, the browser forces me to enter all of my information (username, password, & device name). Is there no remember my info option? The browser also says that I need to download this xfinity wifi app in order to automatically sign in to a nearby xfinity hotspot. I already have the app and it does not automatically sign me in EVER! It usually kicks me out even!
Appreciate the idea, not the execution So basically..you need to download the app, login on the app with your username/PW you created, and THEN go back to your cell to the WiFi screen(or if u have android like me drop down activity menu) and select Xfinity WiFi. Only then you will have the WiFi access. I had a hard time figuring this out originally after several attempts back and fourth trying to get signed into the WiFi the normal way. Was not given or shown nor able to find directions to do this properly. I winged it, being fairly tech savvy.
How is this app helpful? Honestly, this application is a waist of space. I'm trying to figure out if it actually does anything other than help you find Xfinity wifi/hotspots. I was hoping for an app that would improve my Xfinity connection outside of my home. So, don't waist space on your device unless you enjoy another big brother tracking you...This application is most likely only that.
Useless for Marshmallow - Android 6 No need of this app for Marshmallow as it is useless. With or without this app phone will never automatically reconnect to xfinity wifi, even to the saved wifi. Just a battery drainer. Can and have to do that manually through phone's wifi settings. Cannot understand what Comcast thinks about updating it to make it function on the operating system which is more than a year old...
Doesn't work Is this app optimized for Android 7.1. 1? I use to be able to use Xfinity wifi anywhere. Now, it works nowhere! Please fix and I will change my rating. I called Xfinity and put a ticket in to the engineers. They are clueless! They told me all the hotspots are busy in my area. Really? I pay enough for cable, this should be working perfectly.
Absolutely horrible If I could rate this app no stars I would. This app has done nothing but cause connection problems since installing it. It constantly shuts my Wi-Fi off and tells me that I lost the connection when I have a full signal. This app sucks and I'm forced to uninstall it. I'm very disappointed because until the update this app was great. It needs fixed.
Optimized for Android 6.0, performance improvements.
