alerts me when free WiFi is available nice data saver when traveling around town. like how it alerts me when I'm close to a hotspot. unsure if there is an auto connect feature.. but I have one on my actual phone, so it does it anyway. also love the "average data savings" feature, pretty cool! ...i believe you need to have a time warner internet account established and pay monthly to connect to passpoints..
Drains battery ! ! ! I'd been wondering why the battery on my Note 4 dies so early in the day. Mystery Solved : "My TWC" and "TWC WiFi Finder" are soaking up 20% of battery power, more than any other 2 apps or services on my phone! They do this EVEN WHEN I DON'T USE THEM!!! I expect I'll remove them from my phone. I thought they were 'added value' of TWC, but instead they are TWC taking value from my phone.
Had to uninstall from my new Galaxy S7 2 weeks after I got my new phone I started having WiFi issues. Ran it in safe mode for a day with no problem. Now back in regular mode this app constantly notifies me that I'm connected to Twc passpoint. Of course I am, I'm a Time Warner customer! Nothing but problems with Time Warner anymore! I'm removing this app today and hoping that I don't have to reset my phone.
Getting better This is a handy little app that has been very useful getting me onto hotspots. Although it has gotten better with each release, it still fails to log into some hot spots, and seems to cause my Android S5 to slow down and occasionally freeze as it negotiates connections. This may be a function of the Android OS, but it seems to be related to this app as well.
Notifications working My phone keeps indicating there's a hot spot even when I am already using Wi-Fi at home. It's very annoying and even when I'm away I cannot seem to sync into the signal.😥
Once installed it's poo The WiFi finder is great except. Before I installed Wi-Fi finder all three of the available TWC Wi-Fi login worked on my phone. Now my phone won't work in the community unless I turn off the Wi-Fi and use my service providers 4 LTE.
