Optimum Wi Fi Finder
The Optimum Wi Fi Hotspot Finder application is a good app to have for Optimum customers who goes out and intends to connect to the Internet. The design is simple and pared down so users can easily search for spots based on location or specific type of place. Besides a list detailing the name of the places with distance from you, users can use the map provided to get a better idea of the location or locations with access if necessary. Users also have the option to save these hotspots for quick access, share them with others and take a better look at the area with Google Street View.
I got this app thinking I could identify optimum hotspots sign on to them locally & save some data. Whoa- My bad!!! All I get to see is a cute map of all the many hot spots around me but cannot access any of them! I even called an optimum app customer agent for help with this app and spent 20min getting absolutely NO where. He even said to click the cable wi fi logo which I did multiple times with zero success in accessing any of the hot spots!
I also have not been able to log in to any of the optimum partnership hot spots at all so far which I was told should be accessible to me as an optimum online triple play customer!!!
So It's just another case of "Water, water -every where- and not a drop to drink!"
Don't waste precious data space on your phone with this app! What's the point if you can't use it to sign on for the Wi Fi access at the spots located ??? If some one tells me how and I can do it easily I repost a much better app review after that!
Ppl w/neg reviews....READ and educate urself on how to work the app, have some patience and learn. I had many of the same problems mentioned BUT actually clicked on the "help" button or "FAQ"....AND imagine !? Taking a few min to read and learn may just surprise u ! U don't have to b a rocket scientist either. I had issues at first w/this app but like I said, It took about an hour, some patience, a few mistakes, and just a teeny bit of intelligence and here I am leaving a 5 star review! Before u leave a bad review troubleshoot and use your head!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
