WiFi Magic (formerly known as Mandic magiC) is a social network for public WiFi passwords.
So what are public WiFi passwords? WiFi passwords are the ones required to access public WiFi networks at restaurants, hotels, cafes, etc. where you typically have to ask for a password before using the network.
WiFi Magic relies on the collaboration between users, who help each other by updating the system with new public WiFi networks and their passwords, thus allowing other users to automatically fetch them. WiFi Magic has no direct access to your passwords or your router.
WiFi Magic is present in locations around the world, including remote and isolated places such as Greenland, Patagonia or central Africa.
Advantages of using WiFi Magic:
Data plan savings. Nowadays most of our data resides in the Cloud, photos, email, games, etc., resulting in a need for more expensive data plans. WiFi Magic helps you minimize the use of your data plan.
Roaming savings. It is well known that roaming charges are usually incredibly high. WiFi Magic allows you to find the closest WiFi hotspot, thus avoiding the use of expensive roaming during trips abroad.
Battering savings. Cellular 3G and 4G technologies for data are known to consume more battery than WiFi connectivity.
NOTE: WIFI MAGIC IS RESTRICTED TO PUBLIC NETWORKS. IT DOES NOT HANDLE ANY SORT OF PRIVATE OR RESIDENTIAL NETWORKS.

Ratings and Reviews
My problem :/
It's simple: if you need wi-fi, you don't have too much 3G. If you don't have it, how the app wants to obrigated you to log-in and enter on your facebook? I always have this problem... It would be cool to fix it and ask the log-in after this.
Altough, it's a very good app
Need Improvements / Necessita de Melhorias
The app is very helpful, but I think that should have the option to add the entire city on "My List", the map renderization is slow and the app crashes time to time, closing after that. Overall is a good app, doing those improvements is gonna be perfect! I tested on 3 differents iPhone's, the problems happened on all phones. / O aplicativo é muito útil, mas eu acho que deveria ter a opção de adicionar toda a cidade em "Minha Lista", a renderização dos mapas é lenta e o aplicativo trava de tempos em tempos, fechando depois disso. No geral é um bom aplicativo, fazendo essas melhorias vai ser perfeito! Eu testei em 3 diferentes iPhone's, os problemas aconteceram em todos os telefones. 👍👌
Very valuable tool!
After I had installed the app and downloaded the wifi spot data for some of the neighborhoods I spend time in, this tool became one of the most started apps. Very easy to use and a bit addictive.
Minor flaw - GPS stopped working after the latest update on iPhone 5 and iOS 5.
