Favourite iPhone App #9: #iPass
The recent update to iPass for iPhone has addressed the #1 complaint about earlier versions by finally providing support for corporate users. For a monthly fee iPass gives you access to over 100,000 wifi hotspots around the world.
For road warriors it provides cheap access to the many varied hotspots in airports, hotels, etc.
On the downside, despite the very extensive list of supported locations I still run into hotels where iPass doesnt work.
There is also a functionality problem with some T-Mobile hotspots that I described in this post.
My final complaint is that unlike the iPass desktop app which lists available and supported wifi networks, the iPhone version required that you connect to the network before launching the app. This seems somewhat backward to me.
Despite these niggles it is a real money saver.
