Editors' Review

WeFi is a free Windows utility that helps you connect to open Wi-Fi hotspots. Sifting through the dozens of hot spots available sucks up valuable time that you could be using to work. It doesn't add much to the options already on Windows, but it is a very neat program to look at.

From the looks of it, this program seems like it's trying to be a Foursquare for Wi-Fi. It lays out hot spots on a map and gives you the opportunity to review and connect automatically to them. However, it doesn't do the best job of locating your computer on GPS. Plus, there aren't many businesses that actually use the program. You'll be lucky to find one or two WeFi businesses nearby. That doesn't mean it's a bad program, though. It has a very pleasing layout and will find non-WeFi-approved hot spots that you can connect on. You can do that without downloading the program, though. That and the random Facebook sign-in the program encourages make it seem a little pointless.

WeFi doesn't bring any exciting features or exclusive content to the table. If you want to connect to a handful of hot spots automatically or you frequent some businesses that use the program, it's worth downloading. Otherwise, there's not much here to be excited about.
