Worksnug: Find Free Wifi Hotspots Using Augmented Reality
February 16th, 2010
With more and more coffee shops asking you to pay for WiFi, it’s getting annoying to open up your laptop and find the internet hidden behind a pay wall. That’s why I thought that WorkSnug was so cool. It finds WiFi connections for you using your iPhone and augmented reality.
It uses GPS and WiFi to locate hotspots, uses the camera, compass and accelerometer on the iPhone 3GS to show locations on a heads-up 3D screen wherever you point your phone. You can also toggle to a 2D mode if the 3D is too difficult for you to follow.
The best thing about WorkSnug is that this app is that it’s currently free. The worst part is that it only works in London and Barcelona at present. But if you’re fortunate enough to live in one of those places, you can download WorkSnug for iPhone here.
