WiFox is a continually updated map of airport and lounge wifi passwords from around the world. In map view, you can tap any wifi icon where wireless information is available, and use the button to copy the password to the clipboard. The map is available offline so you don’t need an Internet connection to use WiFox when you’re traveling.
*Click Copy to easily paste passwords into wireless network settings.
*Users can also add passwords they find from airports around the world. Those passwords are then sent to foXnoMad for verification and approval before they are added to the map.
*In ‘List View’ you can update passwords for airports already added (when you’ve noticed some changes). As you travel you can also rate the wireless hotspot information to let us know if the details worked for you or not. Based on traveler feedback, the connection information is updated, verified, or removed.
*WiFox icons indicate how fresh, reliable, and highly rated a given airport wireless network’s information is.
*WiFox is updated continuously with information travelers, pilots, and other users send through the WiFox app, foXnoMad website, and foXnoMad Facebook and Twitter accounts. WiFox currently has wireless Internet information for over 700 airports around the world.
*The map is updated automatically upon opening the app (when you have Internet access) or by clicking the ‘Update’ button on the map or refresh icon on the List View.
*WiFox also protects users on free (open) wifi networks by telling you the proper network name, so you don't unintentionally connect to a rogue or malicious access point.
WiFox Premium subscriptions unlock the following features:
* Automatic notifications of the highest rated password, with network connection information, as soon as you land. WiFox Premium detects the airport you're at and displays the most relevant wifi network name and password so you can get online as soon as you step off the plane.
* View password ratings to see which passwords work best throughout an airport so you can connect to the strongest and most reliable connection.
* Be able to add your own password ratings within WiFox. Premium user priority ratings ensure the best wifi passwords are always displayed.

Ratings and Reviews
Best thing when no access to lounges to get an emergency internet call through or look at air/hotel options. Keeps getting updated by "real people" who travel for business or leisure.
Doesn't Launch Part II
About a previous version of the App, I wrote:
<<On an iPhone 4s/iOS 9.3.5, most launches end in a spontaneous self-quit. Perhaps one launch in ten succeeds - not enough. It's a fine idea, and I'd use it if it worked...but it doesn't.>>
I have it one star for a good idea only.
Now, on the same hardware and software, the new version launches correctly and is stable. We're not on the road, so I can't add airport network data or do more than search the database for already-entered data from others.
But I think the developer is on the right track here. Four stars.
I'm really liking this app, and love how users can submit updates to different connections. I think it'd be great to eventually add any wifi/hotspots (not just airports) so travelers will be able to find or see free connections near them. A+!
