WeFi is a free software that helps you find Wi-Fi hotspots in your area. It allows your computers to automatically find and map nearby hotspots, and also helps you manage connections to the hotspots other WeFi members have found.
WeFi automatically detects and qualifies all Wi-Fi access points within range and connects you to the spot with the best Internet connection. If the WeFi software detects a new access point, it allows you to add the spot to the map and thereby help other users to locate these points. WeFi is community driven - each person using WeFi plays a part in growing the network. As more users join, more Wi-Fi data is collected and mapped. At present more than 48 million hotspots are mapped across hundreds of cities around the globe.
WeFi also provides you with Instant-Messaging tools, allowing you to create a buddy list, and to see where your friends are currently connected.
