Worthless. FYI: Comcast opened your wireless gateway ateway to the public! Unless you're suddenly in desperate need of a hot-spot, this app is worthless. More importantly, Comcast may be using your wireless gateway as a public hot-spot. For some reason they forgot to mention it to their customers. Look into it to make sure the internet service you pay for isn't available to everyone.
Hate auto-connect The new update is horrible, every time you drive past any xfinity wifi it automatically connects and kicks you out of what you were doing. I work for the company and have uninstalled every one of their apps, including this one now!
Invasive I an frustrated. I got the app but when I'm using navigation it sticks because it keeps turning on for every location i pass which then interrupts my navigation. How about a "would you like to connect"
Great coverage better than UVerse Came back to Xfinity Comcast from AT&T U-Verse after a billing issue, move to same building with same service and we'll tripled our bill. Comcast from what we experienced in the past had CRAPPY customer service and that's is why we left them. We decided to give Xfinity another try being they expanded services to HOTSPOTS like back East. This was Gold being it could reduce our Data line service with our Cell carrier. So on install date, the tech was impeccably professional on time.
Drains your battery... This probably works just fine in some areas, but if you move around a lot or aren't in a place with Infinity wifi, your phone will be constantly searching for a wireless network which drains your battery. Unless you turn it off in settings (default is 'on'), your wifi will continually turn on without your knowledge. Battery life gets very short because of this. I've uninstalled it.
No complaints so far. Works well, especially when out and about in city centers. People's complaints are a bit unfounded. You can turn off your own hotspot from your Xfinity account, which I did. Sorry. And from the app settings you can choose NOT to have your WiFi automatically turn on when in range. So you'll only connect if you WiFi is on and you aren't connected to another network. Until Google gets their hot air balloons up and running, it's a pretty good option for WiFi everywhere.
